Legendary fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh has passed away at the age of 74. Lindbergh was most famous for his black-and-white photographs that centered on realism, channeling his aversion to retouching during the ’90s.

One of his most iconic photographs captured Linda EvangelistaNaomi Campbell, Tatjana Patitz, Cindy Crawford, and Christy Turlington for Vogue in 1990, who were wearing jeans, wrap tops and very little make-up. This photograph went on to become one of Vogue‘s most iconic covers, and continued to shoot for the publication up until his death, capturing everybody from Cara Delivigne to Kate Moss. He also famously captured Estelle Lefébure, Karen Alexander, Rachel Williams, Linda Evangelista, Tatjana Patitz and Christy Turlington in Santa Monica in a candid picture of them wearing white shirts on the beach in 1988.

Lindbergh focussed on capturing his subject’s personality and spirit, encouraging models to be honest, original and natural. His later work included producing album covers for the likes of Beyoncé and Daft Punk, and was also known for his work producing movie posters — most notably working with David Bowie, Susan Sarandon and Catherine Deneuve for the 1983 vampire drama, The Hunger.

7 Era-Defining Peter Lindbergh British Vogue Covers (written by @benknightevans) – JANUARY 1990 One of the most iconic covers in British Vogue’s 103-year history, the magazine’s first issue of the 1990s set the tone for the decade. Coming after the big hair and overt glamour of the Eighties, its undone influence extended beyond fashion into popular culture when George Michael took Naomi, Linda, Tatjana, Christy and Cindy from their Giorgio di Sant’Angelo tops and Levi’s jeans from SoHo in Manhattan to various states of undress in his legendary Freedom! ‘90 music video. The circle was made complete as three of the quintet of quintessential supermodels sauntered down Gianni Versace’s autumn/winter 1991 catwalk lip synching to Freedom! ‘90, committing every contributor firmly to fashion folklore. – #LindberghStories #BritishVogue #fromthevault
