Zoya Sakr has been chosen to conduct a special photo session in Paris with international photographer Peter Lindberg, famous for his black and white cinematographic photographs.
Lindberg never chooses his models randomly. He picks famous celebrities, whether in the world of fashion or in Hollywood, such as Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Kate Moss, Kate Winslet, and many more. Now he has chosen Zoya Sakr to be the first Lebanese figure to shine in front of his lens.
Lindberg reveals the soul out of his picture
About this experience, Zoya stated: "I grew up following his dazzling masterpieces, but I did not expect that one day I will stand in front of the legend Lindberg lens. My dream came true after 20 years in this industry, and I consider this to be one of my most important achievements,” knowing that Lindberg differs from other photographers in showing the spirit and the deep true personality through his photographs, adding “his passion for his work and professionalism made this photo shoot magical, easy, and very enjoyable… especially that he really could bring out my soul like no other photographer ever did.”
Zoya also praised Lindberg's modesty, pointing out that she felt great pride and privilege to stand in front of his lens.
The world photographer took more than 3,600 photos during the shooting session but chose only 11 pictures based on his different perspective in choosing the desired images that reveal the soul.
Photographer with a different view
Lindberg has introduced a new concept in cinematographic photography and has published his latest book “A Different Look at Fashion Photography,” which has a visual language of its own revealing 40-years of shooting. The book also features 25 fashion designers including Yves Saint Laurent, Giorgio Armani, Lagerfeld, Dolce & Gabbana, and several others.
Lindberg was also the only world photographer chosen to shoot the famous Pirelli calendar, which includes black and white photographs of 15 movie stars including Nicole Kidman, Julianne Moore, Uma Thurman, and Penelope Cruz. It is considered an important milestone in Lindberg’s profession.
