Format: Hardcover
Peter Lindbergh's impression of women is a respectful and complimentary one. He sees them as well-grounded in character first, rather than as artful silhouettes. His work often grittily outlines women's substantial personalities by showing them operating independently within the urban and industrial manliness of modern society.
The volume contains female nudity that would probably earn the work an "R" rating if it were a motion picture.
This volume contains 189 Novatone plates that provide the definitive collection of Mr. Lindbergh's fashion and portrait work. The pages are large and the images well reproduced. The main problem with the book is that center creases devaste many images, which should have been fold-outs.
The introduction by Martin Harrison is quite well done, and well worth your time and attention. ". . . [I]t is evident his models enjoy being photographed by him." In making these images, "Lindbergh peels away some of the artifice of a fashion sitting . . . ." The models say, ". . . [W]e recognize ourselves . . . ." "His women are strong; handsome rather than pretty, they are definitely not pushovers." "The gaze . . . is neither passive nor exactly defiant." The gaze is definitely challenging you to show what you've got however, to earn the respect of these self-confident and self-contained women. There is a strong sense of trust that the women are showing in Lindberg in order to to portray themselves in these assertive, rather than pretty, ways.
I find many of his photographs of movement in gritty urban and industrial settings to be interesting rather than compelling.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on April 5, 2002
Format: Paperback
Peter Lindbergh should stay with fashion photography, staged and stagnant, with women who are only capable of recognizing themselves. With the exception of three or four photographs, most of the women appear to be projecting a lifeless imitation of some human feeling or expression. Even more remarkable is his ability to photograph a nude or semi-nude woman and remove from her any projection of sensuality or femininity. They seem to have the warmth of a mannequin, which in fairness to Lindbergh,may be the truth which he captures.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Arvin on July 26, 2005
Format: Paperback
The photos are beautiful and the prints are excellent, but the 'ties that bind' this work of art together are weak. I have had this book for a couple of years, but have only looked through it less than 10 times, and the binding glue is coming loose. This is letting the interior sections move around and basically ruining the whole book. Buyer beware on the crappy construction of this book. The only upside I see is that when the pages finally fall out, I can put some in frames as art.
