"[Juergen said,] ‘Let's just throw our clothes off and see what happens.' And I said, ‘No, I don't think I will.' ‘Well, I will,' he said. It certainly was a picture. It's also about the fun side of it. I have to make commercial things fun."

"I like that trueness in a person. That's what's amazing to me. It's the act of being in love each time with someone you don't really know, with her aura, her face, or maybe just with your own projection towards this person."
—Peter Lindbergh, Influence, by Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, 2008
"Helmut Newton's portrait of Charlotte Rampling from the '70s is one of my favorite photographs of all time ... [It] seemed to me the ultimate portrait of a woman. There's something going on between her and the photographer, the way he's looking at her and she's looking back at him. She's so striking and cool, and you can tell she's smart. Who doesn't want to be that?"
