Peter Lindbergh lends star portraits to press freedom album


Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières) is a French Non-Governmental Organisation dedicated to defending the freedom of the press and the rights of journalists worldwide, notably those targeted by persecution. Established in 1985, it has gained international recognition for its work, including numerous prizes, and has the status of consultant for the United Nations. As part of its fundraising activities, it regularly publishes an album featuring photo reportages and numerous articles on the theme of freedom of the press around the world. The latest album features the work of German photographer Peter Lindbergh, one of the most renowned fashion and celebrity photographers whose (mostly) black and white portraits have won him wide acclaim during a career spanning four decades. Lindbergh, who moved to France in 1978, provided Reporters Without Borders with 100 of his photos, a sample of which Mediapart publishes here.
