All About Peter Lindbergh dead:

He was considered one of the most influential fashion photographers of the past 40 years.

Lindbergh worked for famous fashion designers such as Jean-Paul Gaultier and Giorgio Armani as well as for international magazines and coined fashion photography with his distinctive black-and-white images.

His works have been shown in numerous exhibitions, including most recently in Paris, Munich and Dusseldorf.

With his picture of six later supermodels in men's shirts, which appeared in Vogue in 1988, Lindbergh wrote photography history.

The photographer looked behind the façade of his models to be screened as well as his other subjects.

 "I'm interested in women who have something to say and who exude self-determination," said Lindbergh.

Lindbergh was born as Peter Brodbeck 1944 in Lissa in today's Poland and grew up with two siblings in Duisburg.

At 18, he briefly moved to Lucerne, then to Berlin and took evening classes at the Art Academy. He studied painting in Krefeld before concentrating on photography in 1971.

From 1978 Lindbergh worked in Paris for the "Vogue", soon also for "The New Yorker", "Vanity Fair" and the "Rolling Stone."

In 1988, Anna Wintour brought him to the American "Vogue" and let him take the cover of her first issue as editor-in-chief.

Lindbergh became particularly famous for the cover of the British "Vogue" in 1990, for which he brought together Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Tatiana Patitz, Cindy Crawford and Christy Turlington for a picture in the streets of New York.

It's an attitude, a stance, that makes a good photographer, Lindbergh once said about his work. "Even fashion photographers - even if one should not accept it - have a form of responsibility."

He denounced today's portrayal of women in the media: "It's been as dog-breeding as women look like in magazines today,"

he said. This is due to image editing programs such as Photoshop, which could wipe out all evidence of a lived life.

In May, he released his documentary "Peter Lindbergh - Women's Stories" by Jean-Michel Vecchiet. "Over the years, I have realized even more that beauty has nothing to do with youth,"

 Last time Peter Lindbergh said in an interview with SPIEGEL ONLINE. "A real person who has his whole face on his face sitting in front of him is great, and rarely.
