Peter Lindbergh’s Legacy Continues on with “Heimat. A Sense of Belonging”
A new exhibition at Milan’s Armani/Silos is devoted to the lasting effect of the late Peter Lindbergh’s photography.
Opening this weekend, parallel to the start of Milan fashion week, Heimat. A Sense of Belonging is an exhibition curated by Giorgio Armani and the Peter Lindbergh Foundation to honor the monumental work of the late photographer. A plethora of Lindbergh’s published and unpublished photography stretching across numerous decades will be displayed throughout Armani/Silos until August of this year.
Lindbergh’s work was featured in prominent magazines and film festivals alike since the ‘70s, but above all else, the photographer sought to find truth in and remove artifice from fashion photography. He mused the industrial sites from his German upbringing and the complexity of femininity, which the exhibition emphasizes through Lindbergh’s most acclaimed portraits where the soul of his subject is prioritized, a notion that forever changed the standards for fashion photography. The title of the exhibit, heimat, comes from the German word for home, where one belongs and their heart resides.
