Photos for Freedom.
Famed German photographer and filmmaker Peter Lindbergh has published a glossy coffee table book featuring 100 black and white portraits in order to draw attention to the rights of journalists worldwide. Called 100 photos pour la liberté de la press (100 Photos for the Freedom of the Press) the book is one of a series released by non-government agency Reporters sans Frontiers (Reporters without Borders) in order to draw attention to the plight of journalists and the importance of freedom of the press. This installment features intimate black and white captures of well-known faces, including Kate Moss, Audrey Tatou, Tilda Swinton and Cate Blanchett, as well as articles on the status of freedom of press around the world.
Lindbergh began taking photos for Vogue in the late 1970s, adding Vanity Fair, The New Yorker and Allure to his roster of publications in subsequent years. He shot the first cover for American Vogue and a prolific photographer of the 1990s supermodels, shooting Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Tatjana Patitz and Cindy Crawford together in several now-iconic shots. Aside from the Reporters without Borders book his work is also currently on exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery in Paris, until November 22. You can order the book from rsf.org for only 9.90 euro.
