When Peter Lindbergh takes a picture, the world bears witness. This speaks volumes given the current state of the world and the supersaturation of images in everyday life. Lindbergh’s latest advertising campaign for German perfume and cosmetics retailer Douglas is of particular interest as it features none other than Alexa Chung and Lineisy Montero. Lindbergh shoots a fair bit of beauty advertising and this most recent outing ranks up there with some of his best work. Celebrated for its honesty, Lindbergh’s portraits eschew the extraneous in favor of the natural beauty of his subjects. To that end, there is little in the way of excessive retouching, makeup, or extravagant lighting. On the contrary, these portraits drive to the hear of his subjects. Alexa and Lineisy look breathtakingly beautiful, which presumably is what Douglas Cosmetics would have wanted from an advertising campaign.
