by Vincent Peters
For more than 20 years, Vincent Peters has been among the best photographers internationally. The artist, a native of Bremen, Germany, lives in Paris and Ibiza and sees the world as his playground. His unmistakable signature style―sensitive, classic photos―is in equally high demand for celebrity, fashion, and advertising photography. With minimal resources, he is able to create dramatic images that look like stills from an imaginary movie. Every picture makes you wonder what will happen next. His first photo book, The Light Between Us, was published in 2014 and showed his best shots of actors, models, and musicians. Now he dedicates himself to his favorite subject in Personal: women. Once again, we encounter stars as they have never been seen before; Penelope Cruz, Linda Evangelista and Irina Shayk are only some of the prominent ladies featured. Vincent Peters hand-selected the pictures for this book, most of which have never been published before. Along with his portraits, there are also nudes that highlight his masterful use of light to create sensuous photographs. This enables him to create mysterious images that celebrate feminine beauty and draw us inexorably under their spell.
Born in Bremen, Germany, in 1969 Vincent Peters moved to New York City at the age of twenty to work as a photographer’s assistant. After returning to Europe in 1995, he worked for various art galleries and on personal projects. In 1999 he began his career at Giovanni Testino’s agency as a fashion photographer.
Within a year Vincent Peters shot worldwide campaigns for brands such as Miu Miu, Yves Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta, and Wolfgang Joop. Over time he established himself with a recognizable style, and major fashion houses like La Perla, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Hugo Boss, Emporio Armani, L’Oréal, Lancôme, Nike, Levi’s, and many others came to him as corporate clients. His photographs appear in international magazines such as Vogue, GQ, The Sunday Times, Numéro, and Glamour.
He is represented by Art Department New York, Tristan Godefroy in Paris, London and Milan & Schierke Artists Management for the German Market.
