Calendar Pirelli In 2017. Peter Lindbergh : “I’m not a fan of bikinis !” – The Parisian

I’m not a fan of bikinis. This is not sexy ! ” launches the great fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh, the author of the edition 2017 of the prestigious Calendar Pirelli. Revealed this Tuesday, November 29th, at the Hotel Salomon de Rothschild, 11 hours, during a press conference in the presence of the actresses Nicole Kidman, Uma Thurman and Helen Mirren. In the evening, a red carpet was being held at the Cité du Cinéma by Luc Besson in Saint-Denis (93), with other stars of this vintage-oriented natural images, as the actress Léa Seydoux.

Peter Lindbergh has chosen fifteen actresses. Phographiant its models, including Penelope Cruz, Julianne Moore, Robin Wright, Jessica Chastain, Rooney Mara, Zhang Ziyi, Charlotte Rampling, Alicia Vikander, Kate Winslet, Lupita’nyong o or Anastasia Ignatova, sets, rough, with very little makeup, the maestro of fashion wanted to deliver a message.

“If it is necessary to try to look like women in magazines, then good luck ! This is not my vision of beauty,” said he. “I chose women of all ages and leave them dressed to show that beauty is something that comes from oneself. We must do away with the terror of perfection and eternal youth”.

“We can no longer tolerate these faces affadis by photoshop, unmarked and empty. It is impossible. I have long been very reassembled against this phenomenon. But today I restrained,” he said again.

A message that, at a time when these diktats imposed by advertising and fashion magazines are so bad. And where the pressure of the appearance places a further burden on adolescent girls.

Peter Lindgbergh has not opted for spectacular photographs and hypersexualisés in the pure tradition of Pirelli. What has surprised more than one. In particular, the actress british Helen Mirren, age 71, who says : “when arriving in the studio, I thought I’d put fishnet stockings and having the eye smoky. But Peter I was photographed naked, wrapped in a blanket, without lipstick, in a setting of gross. I loved it.”

For Peter Linbergh, “Has the age of smartphones, you are a photographer when you have a point of view and have an impact on the people. This is not by posting ten images on Instagram that one becomes a photographer,” recalls the father of the supermodels of the 2000s, which is still working with a film camera to keep an intimacy with the model.

the key, the German, who posed his subjects in settings of industrial and urban, between Paris, Los Angeles, New York , London or Le Touquet, offers us to see images of these muses deliver more than the pictures of the magazines and advertisements.

in full control of their images, they know by heart their best postures and attitudes. In a world where communication is locked, they hide in the mechanisms learned by heart and hiding behind the characters. Peter Lindbergh has proposed to do the opposite.

By the magic of his photo shoots to individuals, he has tried to capture their vulnerability. The research, of the women behind those actresses that hide less behind a role. Like Julianne Moore in a single body, the tousled hair, Uma Thurman photographed from very near or Lupita’nyong o leaves a nice light out of his eyes.

A downside, perhaps ? In the choice of the stars supposedly brought the values of a woman freed of the dictates of the beauty or of the eternal youth, it is curious to find Nicole Kidman or Uma Thurman, known to have succumb to the sirens of cosmetic surgery.
