Peter Lindbergh - Women's Stories

Peter Lindbergh has photographed them all. Generations of supermodels and actors have modelled for the German photographer, who became a superstar himself. Lindbergh, who turns 75 this year, was the first to create narratives in his fashion series, and like few others he has managed to capture the naturalness of his models in his photographs. Now, the camera is turned towards him - or rather, it is not. For Jean Michel Vecchiet has performed the small stroke of genius of letting the artist's pictures draw the portrait of the artist himself, and letting the women in his life tell his story. Guided by Lindbergh's sister, his two wives and his editors, using lots of archive footage from photo shoots and Lindbergh's own films, and through hundreds of photographs, we are given a unique insight into Peter the man and Lindbergh the artist. The result is a tender, insightful and generous film about seeing the beautiful things in life and capturing them for one thousandth of a second, which goes on to last forever.
