The German-born photographer and film director is one of the most influential creatives of our time and worked on campaigns with Breitling, shot Beyoncé’s I am… Sacha Fierce album cover and captured the behind the scenes of A Star Is Born with Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga among many more iconic moments.

He captured the beauty of his subjects with a trademark cinematic style, and now his images have become instantly recognisable.

In an interview he said he hoped to be remembered as “some strange German guy who did everything differently”.
