Photographer Peter Lindbergh mentions Robert Pattinson’s photoshoot for Dior

Recognizable for his purist style, Lindbergh seems to be prospering during the current backlash against excessive airbrushing and Photoshopping. “For me, every picture is a portrait — no matter what I’m doing. From my very old standpoint, I think everything you do should have a meaning,” he says. “The idea [that] it doesn’t is unacceptable to me. A lot of mainstream photographers seem not to think about what they’re doing or feel any responsibility toward anything. By the time they’re done, the models don’t have any trace of themselves left. This thing about looking young with no wrinkles or expression is all so boring really.”

In the next month or so, his one-minute Lancôme films featuring Cate Blanchett, Lupita Nyong’o, Penelope Cruz and Lily Collins will be released, as well as L’Oréal ones featuring Julianne Moore, Inès de la Fressange and others. Having just shot Robert Pattinson for the new Dior Homme Parfum campaign, Charlize Theron for J’adore Dior and Michelle Williams for Louis Vuitton, Lindbergh said he doesn’t fit the designer mold, “I look more like a plumber, when you see me. Fashion is not my thing.”
