Quote of the day: Peter Lindbergh

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

“A lot of mainstream photographers seem not to think about what they’re doing or feel any responsibility toward anything. And by the time they’re done, the models don’t have any trace of themselves left. This thing about looking young with no wrinkles or expression is all so boring really.”
