German fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh, credited with inventing the concept of the supermodel in the 1980s, has died aged 74, a message on his Instagram account said on Wednesday.

Born in 1944 in German-occupied Poland, he is seen as the creator of a style of naturalistic fashion photography that showed women without heavy makeup and is known for famous images of Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington.
