that is definitely not the reason why i am criticising his work ...and i think he still is one of the most popular photographers out there ... do you really think a lot of people have a problem with his work?
i'd rather wish there were more problems
but i agree part of this is because the faces he now portrays seem to be emptier than those of the past ...

i actually think he may be the least popular fashion photographer working today. he has easily my favorite for ten or so years and most people (on boards or forums like these) find him boring. i think an element that is missing from his work is the relationship he has with the model. look at his work with milla, linda, nadja, naomi, & kristen - it was great. currently models seem to change every season and no relationship is built. he also seems to work with mostly new faces anyhow.

yes, that might be a reason...
interesting, i've always thought everyone loved his work (and i have never been very impressed by the comments that say 'boring', because they hardly ever explain why), but maybe he's less popular than he used to be...
i don't know, maybe i'd like his pictures better if i saw them for the first time as they are now ... i always carry this nostalgic idea of his older work with me and that makes me get disappointed very easily.

I also prefer Lindbergh's work from the 90's, in my opinion he should be more exclusive, he's is working a lot these days and losting his charm photographing alienesque models.

About Mario Testino he's a copycat, the most of the time he imitates Bruce Weber, Gilles Bensimon and Patrick Demarchelier, his Vanity Fair covers are awful. Testino started his career in the 80's along with Meisel, Ritts, Lindbergh, Demarchelier and Weber but his work was pretty mediocre, it was until 1995 that he did some decent work, today he's just a photographer with magnificent public relations and contacts, that's it.

I do like all the photos posted above,but sometimes I get bored of Lindbergh...he always has the same style. He's the stereotype of a fashion photographer.

I love his work, I really do, BUT he should imo use a little more varied settings.I mean, the desert is pretty and all, but how many years and how many editorials in row just in this thread alone have there been the same elements. Desert, wind sweeping, shrubs, deserted diners and trailers(campers..I don't really know what they're called..) and allways with the satellite dishes and stray dogs in the backround..

and just to prove my point, these are all different italian vogue editorials, and if you look at the other eds posted in this thread, it's pretty obvious that he reeaally likes the desert.

just an obsivation thought, I know he does a lot of other stuff too and I really do think he's great. Plus nothing wrong the pictures above, they are beautiful. But has anybody else noticed this?

beautiful images peppi, a lot of the elements he uses (desert, wind, etc.) are mostly inspired by the industrial landscape/atmosphere of where he grew up... i love the fact that he can take that imagery and make it so eeriely beautiful...
