"ART FOUND ME." BOWTIE -- PETER LINDBERGH - PHOTOGRAPHER

Posted on August 06 2018

"MEMORABLE CINEMATIC IMAGES"

 

 

 I PULLED THIS QUOTE FROM A BIOGRAPHY, WRITTEN ABOUT MR. LINDBERGH.  IT STOOD OUT TO ME, BECAUSE ONCE I STARTED REALLY STUDYING PHOTOGRAPHER'S ART, THESE SIMPLISTIC WORDS CORRECTLY DESCRIBE THIS GENTLEMAN'S WORK.  THIS IS TRULY ONE OF THE PHOTOGRAPHERS THAT I STUDY, A LOT!!!

 

MODEL:

LUPITA NYONG'O

 

I BELIEVE THAT ALL PEOPLE ARE BORN TO DO SOMETHING, EXTRAORDINARILY WELL.  GOD'S GIFTS, WE CALL THEM.  IN MY OPINION, TRUE ARTISTS ARE BORN.  THIS IS WHAT I CALL A TRUE ARTIST!

 

THE ART CREATED BY MR. LINDBERGH HAS AFFECTED MY APPRECIATION OF PHOTOGRAPHY IN SUCH A POSITIVE MANNER, THAT MY "EYE" IS DEFINITELY DEVELOPING FROM STUDYING HIS WORK.  FOR THIS, I WILL FOREVER BE GRATEFUL TO HIM!

 

 

 

 

MODELS (LEFT TO RIGHT):

 

ESTELLE LEFEBURE, KAREN ALEXANDER, RACHEL WILLIAMS, LINDA EVANGELISTA, TATJANA PATITZ, CHRISTY TURLINGTON

 

(AS MOST OF YOU HAVE PROBABLY FIGURED OUT ALREADY, THE PHOTOSHOOT I  DID, WITH THE SIX MODELS IN WHITE DRESS SHIRTS, WAS INSPIRED BY THE ABOVE IMAGE.)

 

ALTHOUGH PORTRAITURE IS NOT MY FORTE, STUDYING HIS WORK HAS SHOWN ME THE IMPORTANCE OF UNDERSTANDING AND LEARNING THIS SPECIALITY.  HIS ART, IN MY OPINION, DISPLAYS THE SHEER BEAUTY IN THE SUBJECTS HE SHOOTS; BEAUTY THAT IS PRESENTED IN A VERY RAW APPROACH.

 

 

 

MODEL:  NAOMI CAMPBELL

 

 

IN A TIME WHERE PERFECTION IS SO VERY COMMON IN THE IMAGES WE SEE, VIA POST PRODUCTION AND APPS, HE CHOOSES TO ALLOW THE SUBJECT'S LIFE TO TELL THE STORY.  OUR INDIVIDUAL STORIES/JOURNEYS ARE TOLD IN OUR FACES...IN OUR EYES.  HIS WORK CAPTURES THIS, IN A VERY ELOQUENT FASHION.

PETER LINDBERGH

 

THE STUDY OF PETER LINBERGH'S BODY OF WORK, IN ADDITION TO OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS, HAS GREATLY ENHANCED THE VISION OF IMAGERY SEEN BY BOTH OF MY APERATURES; THE ONE IN MY EYE'S VIEW AND THE OTHER IN MY CAMERA.  BECAUSE OF THIS ARTISTIC PHENOMENON, I SEE IMPROVEMENT IN EACH AND EVERY PROJECT I CREATE FOR MY BRAND, WHETHER IT BE PHOTOGRAPHIC OR VIDEO.  RECENTLY, A FAMILY MEMBER, THAT IS A FORMER PRINT MODEL, COMMENTED TO ME THAT SHE SEES DEVELOPMENT IN THE WORK I'M PRODUCING.  COMING FROM HER, AS CRITICAL AND MATURE AS HER EYE IS, I KNOW THAT MY PROCESS IS WORKING.  MY INTENTION IS TO CONTINUE WORKING SAID PROCESS, SO THAT MY APPROACH TO VISUALS FOR BOW TIE AND CIGAR CULTURE IN GENERAL, ARE REPRESENTED IN A FLATTERING MANNER.

 

AS I ALWAYS SAY, AND HAVE SAID MANY TIMES BEFORE, "I'M REPRESENTING CIGAR CULTURE, MY WAY."

 

PEACE AND NAMASTE.

 

BOWTIE.
