On Street has recently been released, following up his C/O Berlin Exhibition by the same name. An archival collection of the famed fashion photographer's most influential work, the book spans the past ten years and includes 120 images, from his fashion photography to his Vogue Berlin series of 2009.

As one of the most recognizable and influential photographers working in the world of fashion and portraiture, Lindbergh avoids the bland monotone studio backgrounds in favor of more realistic cityscapes, breathing new life into a genre that has become riddled with clichés. The approach means he has shots like those capturing a rare glimpse of the most famous models void of all artificial styling and makeup. Even Lindbergh's carefully staged photography manages to maintain a powerfully straightforward atmosphere, dominated by his purely naturalist style.
