Peter Lindbergh Is Returning to the Fold at Vogue

>> Peter Lindbergh, who moved from working with Vogue to Harper's Bazaar in 1992 when Liz Tilberis lured him away — “I switched to Bazaar and stayed away for all these years" — is ending his 18 year hiatus from Vogue. Part of the reason he left originally, he said, was because Alexander Lieberman and Grace Mirabella weren't fans of his images of supermodels splayed on the beach: “They told me we can’t handle the women you’re photographing."

He plans to begin work again with Vogue, as well as other Conde Nast publications in the US, after a recent tete-a-tete with Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington. “They asked,” he told WWD. “It was like you are the black sheep in the family, and your older brother asks you to come home.”

He also thinks "fashion photography has gotten a little lost" »

And he's bringing his opinions with him: “Fashion photography has gotten a little lost. There is a lot of carnival going on. The hair has gotten too crazy and the make-up. At the moment, everybody is trying to do young. They have to look young or dress young. Youth is so overdone. All the advertising and magazine covers today — they don’t look like natural women. For me, that’s a real pity. There’s all this retouching. A little humanity would do good, especially in fashion photography.”
