Meghan Markle, Penelope Cruz, Salma Hayek remember Peter Lindbergh

Meghan Markle, Penelope Cruz, Salma Hayek remember Peter Lindbergh”

Our thoughts are with Peter Lindbergh's loved ones during this time.

A post on the official Instagram account shared by Meghan and the Duke of Sussex praised Lindbergh's work for "capturing the essence of a subject and promoting healthy ideals of beauty, eschewing photoshopping, and preferring natural beauty with minimal makeup".

He is survived by his wife Petra, his first wife Astrid, his four sons Benjamin, Jérémy, Simon and Joseph, and seven grandchildren.

"He leaves a big void", the post says. As Lindbergh's death reverberates across the photography industry and remembrances begin pouring in from models and editors who worked with him, take a moment to review some of Lindbergh's most iconic work and pay homage to his legacy.

The Instagram post included two photos: the shot his family used to announce his death as well as a candid black-and-white photo of Lindbergh with his arm around a smiling Meghan.

The Duchess of Sussex led tributes to the famed photographer, with their collaboration one of his last published works.

He also photographed the royal for Vanity Fair in October 2017 when she starred in TV drama Suits.

His images of supermodels like Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell and actresses like Helen Mirren and Nicole Kidman have graced the covers of Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, always in black and white, always classically composed and beautifully rendered.

"Beyond that, what made him truly one of a kind was his consistent kindness, warmth, and incredible sense of humour", she tweeted.

"Heartbroken. R.I.P.my Peet", she captioned a throwback photo of her and Lindbergh.

He wrote: "It was one of those brilliantly spontaneous moments when HRH The Duchess of Sussex and I had exactly the same idea at exactly the same time".

Meghan personally penned this tribute to her dear friend.

German daily Bild quoted him as having told the newspaper in May: "Nothing is more attractive than photographing the women you love".

She added: 'Rest well legend we love you and miss you already!'
