Photographer
    (November 23, 1944-September 3, 2019)
    Born in Leszno, Poland
    Birth name was Peter Brodbeck
    Fashion photographer
    Worked for Stern, Rolling Stone, Harper's Bazaar, and Vogue
    Shot ad campaigns for Armani, Calvin Klein, and Donna Karan
    Photographer for the Pirelli Calendar three times (1996,2002,2017)
    Photographed covers for Tina Turner's 'Foreign Affair,' Sheryl Crow's 'The Globe Sessions,' and Beyoncé's 'I Am... Sasha Fierce'
    Directed the documentaries 'Models: The Film' (1991) and 'Pina Bausch: Der Fensterputzer' (2001)
    He originally intended to be an artist until his brother convinced him that the work he had created was 'really boring.'
    He did not even pick up a camera until his late-20s, and basically fell into the profession by accident: 'A photographer's assistant position came up through a friend. If there had been another job, I would have become something else.'
    Despite the distinctive appearance of his photos, he insisted, 'I don't have a style and I try not to have one.'
    He was honored for his contributions to AIDS awareness at the amfAR New York Gala (2014)
    His cover shoot for the British edition of Vogue (January, 1990 issue), bringing together Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Tatjana Patitz, Cindy Crawford, and Christy Turlington, has often been called the start of the supermodel era.
    Donna Karan said his work 'is always somthing more than just a fashion picture. In a single image, you feel you really know that person.'
