Lindbergh preferred black & white photography, and noted in 2014: “This should be the responsibility of photographers today to free women, and finally everyone, from the terror of youth and perfection.”

Using black-and-white photography was really important to creating the supermodel. Every time I tried to shoot them in colour, because their beauty was close to perfection, it ended up looking like a bad cosmetics advert. With black and white, you can really see who they are. It toned down the commercial interpretation that colour gives. What’s so striking about black and white is how it really helps a sense of reality to come through.
