Legendary German fashion photographer, Peter Lindbergh, assembles some of 'his women' in a delightful video for Nowness titled – 'The Reunion'. Cindy Crawford, Eva Herzigova, Karen Alexander, Helena Christensen, Nadja Auermann and Tatjana Patitz reunite with the lensman on a breezy Californian beach, to relive a historic moment.

After all it was the 1988 Vogue shoot, captured by Lindbergh, of the then unknown models that lit the 'supermodel' spark and arguably launched these careers. 27 years on, the models, who have swapped the crisp white men's shirts for chunky knits and fur coats, express their affections for the man that helped launch them: 

"THE THING THAT MAKES WORKING WITH PETER MEMORABLE IS JUST PETER, HIS ENERGY." CINDY CRAWFORD

"HE REALLY SEES THE BEAUTY OF A MATURE WOMAN THROUGH EXPERIENCE..." CINDY CRAWFORD

Lindberg's passion and delight is evident as he preys on every moment and every frame, to chants of "beautiful". He captures each model separately before shooting some ensemble images and even joins in to star in front of the camera himself.
