Peter Lindbergh: The Naked Truth

Posted: Updated:
"Naked Truth" is another beautiful photoshoot from the legendary German photographer Peter Lindbergh for Vogue Germany June 2012. In this series, Lindbergh photographed eleven well-known women unadorned, makeup-free and unadulterated by Photoshop, just their pure, natural beauty.
" I try to be truthful in my work. There are no short cuts -- if you set out with the intention of making people ugly to achieve a powerful photograph it is a fake. On the other hand beauty cannot be 'done'. Again I come back to this nebulous word 'truth': perhaps more than anything it is trying to explain something truthful about yourself and about your perception of the way the woman sees herself. "
