The New York Times: Never-Before-Seen Peter Lindbergh Photos

On the occasion of a weighty new Taschen monograph, the photographer Peter Lindbergh dips into his vault to share images and memories from the early ’90s and beyond. Here, “Madonna,” Los Angeles, 1994. “I worked only once with Madonna,” Lindbergh says. “What really struck me was her very strong motivation.”

We were doing a tribute to Martha Graham, her admired dance teacher. I discovered a dancer with a very rare talent. Madonna was moving in a very soulful and personal way, very touching and very much herself. At the same time, there was a feeling of perfection to everything she was doing.”

I was very interested in capturing some of this extraordinary contradiction, which I found absolutely stunning. Those images are as modern today as they were in 1994.”
