Photographer: Jennifer Mays for The New York Times
Today is the eve of the Lunar New Year
I was thrilled also by my last buy of the lunar year, which arrived in the mail yesterday, after a long search for a decent and decently-priced copy - "Peter Lindbergh: Selected Works 1996-1998", published by Assouline. I started paying attention to fashion photography around that time and his brand of gritty glamour plus the stripped down styles of the period was a defining moment for me.
I didn't have time to take some proper pictures of the content, but you can browse the whole book (and a whole lot of other goodness by one of my favourite photographers) here under "books".
