Until April 23rd, the Gagosian Gallery in Athens is holding an exhibition on Peter Lindbergh’s oeuvre. Spanning over three decades, the exhibition examines the artist’s impact and influence in the world of fashion photography and his contribution to portraiture, showcasing his now iconic shots of women inspired by early narrative cinema and street photography. 

Know for his ‘real’ approach to photography made even more powerful by the use of black and white film, Lindebergh’s pre-eminent style is evidenced by the minimalistic compositions and simple backdrops, highlighting the natural beauty and grace of his subjects. A sum of things resulting in pure, raw, mind-blowing works of art. 

Among the works presented at the exhibition you can find a diptych of Monica Bellucci and a portrait of British model Karen Elson, and an odd to the legendary German choreographer Pina Bausch.
