On the occasion of his new Taschen monograph “Peter Lindbergh: A Different Vision on Fashion Photography”, the photographer Peter Lindbergh dips into his vault to share images and memories from the early ’90s and beyond.
He reminisces about shooting Madonna in Los Angeles back in 1994…
I worked only once with Madonna.
What really struck me was her very strong motivation.
We were doing a tribute to Martha Graham, her admired dance teacher. I discovered a dancer with a very rare talent. Madonna was moving in a very soulful and personal way, very touching and very much herself. At the same time, there was a feeling of perfection to everything she was doing.
I was very interested in capturing some of this extraordinary contradiction, which I found absolutely stunning. Those images are as modern today as they were in 1994.
