The model has to give you the moment. It's not you making it. Then give it to you and you capture it. - Peter Lindbergh , Models Close Up by David Bailey, James Sherwood , ISBN: 0789302551 , Page: 12
Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary. - Peter Lindbergh
Photography gives you the opportunity to use your sensibility and everything you are to say something about and be part of the world around you. In this way, you might discover who you are, and with a little luck, you might discover something much larger than yourself. - Peter Lindbergh
Your inspiration is better if it comes from many different sources and your sensibilities will transform all those influences and inspiration into your own visual world. It's like reading the book instead of watching the movie. - Peter Lindbergh
The photographer, even in fashion and portraiture, has to have a standpoint. It's important to know what you stand for, no? Most people just take pictures but they stand for nothing. They follow trends and don't know why. - Peter Lindbergh
