Art in Zagreb: Peter Lindbergh’s Photo Exhibition

Even if you don‘t  follow  fashion or celebrities, I bet you heard of Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Milla Jovovich, Helena Christinsen, Tatjana Patitz or Amber Valetta. Even if you just returned from Mars or something and still don’t know what I’m talking about, there is a big chance you saw their beautiful faces in some magazine while waiting for your train or plane.

Wonderful Zagreb

So let’s face it, you probably heard of them. But have you heard of Peter Lindbergh? That’s a body and soul behind the camera that created photos of those gorgeous women and made them even more beautiful, if possible. Yep, Mr. Lindbergh knows his job well, and he is one of the biggest stars of modern photography.

Peter Lindbergh: the man behind the exhibition

He shoots a lot but doesn’t exhibit that often. Therefor it is not surprising that all world media are showing great interest in his photo exhibition in Zagreb, calling it the top event of modern art that you shouldn’t miss. It’s his first exhibition in 16 years, and the only one he’ll have in the entire 2014. So if you stay in Zagreb until May 10, don’t miss this exhibition.

You’ll be able to enjoy on display more than 150 photos from the two of his most famous art collections: The Unknown and Images of Women. It will be accompanied by a documentary and a video installation featuring the music composed by  Benjamin Lindbergh, Peter Lindbergh’s  eldest son.

In author’s words, the Images of Women art photos define and create a new femininity of the late 1980s and early 1990s, while The Unknown photo collection shows models, actors and ordinary people exposed to an unknown fear and fiction. Lindbergh’s photos celebrate a simple beauty of women emphasizing their personality and mysticism over the fashions they are wearing.

  1. Wow, this looks like a great exhibit. I so wish we were there right now to check this out. I really love black and white photography, the idea of photographing people exposed to a new fear seems almost satanic but I can only imagine the emotion in their faces.

  2. I really enjoy photo exhibits. If I wasn’t halfway around the world, I would definitely check this one out!
