SPRING-SUMMER 2013 – PETER LINDBERGH

Campaign: Spring/Summer 2013
Photographer: Peter Lindbergh
Location: Universal Studios, Los Angeles
Notes: Internationally renowned photographer Peter Lindbergh has been a hugely influential figure in fashion photography since the late 1970s. He has a direct, minimalist approach to fashion photography that captures the individuality of the subject. For Bottega Veneta Creative Director Tomas Maier, Peter Lindbergh was a natural choice for the Spring/Summer 2013 campaign because of the deep curiosity and genuine humanity the photographer brings to his work. “This is a nuanced and diverse collection in which the crucial element is the individual who wears the clothes,” he explains. “There are few photographers who can convey the range of emotion and personality that Peter can.”
