“I hate retouching, I hate make-up”

Working in photography, Lindbergh became known for rejecting excessive retouching of images of women, saying: “This should be the responsibility of photographers today, to free women, and finally everyone, from the terror of youth and perfection.”

He was known for capturing the natural beauty of his subjects. “I hate retouching, I hate make-up. I always say, ‘Take the make-up off!’” he told British Vogue earlier this year.

In 1988, Lindbergh received international acclaim by showing a new generation of models all dressed in white shirts.

Lindbergh has worked with some of the biggest publications, including Vogue, The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar US, and the Wall Street Journal Magazine.

In 2019, Lindbergh took a series of portraits for the September edition of Vogue magazine, which was guest-edited by Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex.

The cover featured portraits by Lindberg of 15 women, including teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg and New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern.

A tribute on the Instagram account of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said that there was “no other photographer [Meghan] considered to bring this meaningful project to life.

“His work is revered globally for capturing the essence of a subject and promoting healthy ideals of beauty, eschewing photoshopping, and preferring natural beauty with minimal makeup.”
