Tina Turner - Azzedine Alaia - Peter Lindbergh - Book

Peter Lindbergh & Azzedine Alaïa, the photographer and the couturier, were united by their love of black. Lindbergh ceaselessly turned to black and white to signify his search for authenticity in the faces he brought to light. Alaïa drew on the monochrome of timeless clothes to create veritable sculptures for the body. This book illustrates their community of spirit, its images are a celebration of their artistic partnership and testament to their history-making achievements in photography and fashion.

Alaïa’s clothes act as pedestals for the smiles and eyes of the women who wear them: Nadja Auermann, Naomi Campbell, Jade Jagger, Madonna, Tatjana Patitz and Tina Turner. For Lindbergh, who built his notoriety on the images of these supermodels, the authenticity of their traits is all that matters. The result is a potent black and white catalogue that reverberates with truthfulness and beauty.
