Catalogue Note

Often credited with kick-starting the era of the supermodel, Peter Lindbergh’s iconic shoots of a newly discovered group of models for Vogue in the 1980s garnered him international acclaim. Seen as promoting a new understanding of female beauty and pioneering the new style of realism, the photos were a fresh departure from the larger-than-life glamour of the previous decade. Tatjana Patitz, along with Christy Turlington and Linda Evangelista, feature in all three of his famous Vogue covers and have been recurrent figures in his photographs throughout their careers.
