Fraser, On the Edge: Images from 100 Years of Vogue, n.p
Models is an exceptional work that highlights Lindbergh’s ability to show effortless, natural beauty. The photograph features supermodels Estelle Lefébure, Karen Alexander, Rachel Williams, Linda Evangelista, Tatjana Patitz and Christy Turlington. The simplicity of the white shirts with the models laughing on the beach encapsulates the essence of why Lindbergh became a pioneer in photography. Models was so greatly avant-garde that Vogue US said they couldn’t use the pictures. Lindbergh idealised women in their natural form, and aimed to show them “in all honesty”.
