From Fashion to Reality …

… and all the way back. Peter Lindbergh is a phenomenon in fashion-shooting, there’s no question about it. His ability to catch the individual in its natural beauty without magnificent makeup and overwhelming setting has become a unique style of his creative work. So it is only fair that he is now honored in Munich with an outstanding exhibition (Kunsthalle der Hypo-Kulturstiftung till the 27th of August 2017). But you shouldn’t expect a walkthrough with just framed works of prominent people. Meandering through the premisses of the Kunsthalle you can discover a lot more than that: A nicely sorted storeroom with his equipment from the past analog times will be followed with a darkroom-installation explaining some of his scoops. Walls covered wildly with plenty of images supported by video-explanations. All in all it is worth seeing to get a peek of the spirit of that creative mind. Thanks to the Hypo-Kunsthalle for the invitation even if the opening was run down by too many people. The cue was going far down Theatinerstreet. No chance to get in. So we had a dinner in-between and enjoyed the show than later pretty privately even if the wine was already depleted. Here are some impressions of the exhibition.
