Renowned German fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh, who worked in the 1980s and 1990s with supermodels such as Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and Linda Evangelista, has died aged 74.
A message posted on Lindbergh's official Instagram account by his wife Petra, his ex-wife, his four sons and seven grandchildren said "it is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Peter Lindbergh ... He leaves a big void".
Lindbergh was renowned for his cinematic, elegant style.
Born in 1944, he grew up in Germany, where he made his first steps as a photographer before moving to Paris in 1978 to pursue his career.
Actress Charlize Theron paid tribute to the late photographer, saying her heart was broken: "Peter Lindbergh was a genius and an absolute master of his craft. Beyond that, what made him truly one of a kind was his consistent kindness, warmth, and incredible sense of humor. One of the best human beings I have ever met. I will never forget you my friend."
Lindbergh is survived by his wife Petra, his first wife Astrid, four sons Benjamin, Jérémy, Simon, Joseph and seven grandchildren.
