Lindbergh’s dramatic vision

Over the weekend, Daniel wrote a piece about the beauty of photo shoots that come with a strong, interpretive narrative. Not long after, Numero magazine brings to us the magical work of Peter Lindbergh, where you wouldn’t be able to go past its profound storyline. It’s less about what to wear this coming season and more to do with the camera lens documenting a life that rarely exposes itself.

The relationship between French actor Pascal Greggory and model Daphne Groeneveld is significantly strong. The overcast sky, strikingly captured in this black-and-white editorial, intensifies the emotions of the narrative being told. Greggory seems to be caught amidst the gloomy stage of life, where he is expected to draw a line between what’s wrong and right. As he wanders aimlessly on the secluded beach, the angel and demon strive to entrap his lost soul. But a character so intense, it’s hard to tell if he lets himself succumb to either of the feathered wings.

Even though this soul-searching quest doesn’t come with a strong fashion backbone, the photographer’s dramatic vision and execution is what puts it in the forefront of documentary fashion photography.
