Photographer Peter Lindbergh dies at 74

Fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh, whose trademark was the dramatic black and white portrait, has died at 74.

The German photographer passed away on Tuesday, his official Instagram account said, leaving a “big void”.

Born in 1944 in what is now Poland, Lindbergh worked with many fashion designers along with international magazines throughout his career.

Recently he worked with Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, on the September edition of Vogue magazine.

He worked with her to create images for the “Forces for Change” issue of the magazine that highlighted female activists, politicians and actors.

A statement posted to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Instagram on Wednesday paid tribute to Lindbergh. It said: “The Duchess of Sussex had worked with Peter in the past and personally chose him to shoot the 15 women on the cover.

“There is no other photographer she considered to bring this meaningful project to life.”
