iGNANT is delighted to exclusively preview a duo of classic magazine covers shot by Brigitte Lacombe, featuring two of the film industry greats of our time: director-producer Martin Scorsese and actor, producer and director Robert De Niro.
„When I met De Niro in New York, he told me how much he admires Brigitte’s work. I couldn’t agree more.“ The ZEITMagazin MANN cover featuring De Niro launches today (14.03.17), and – here exclusively previewed on iGNANT – ZEITMagazin, featuring a portrait of Scorsese, launches this Thursday (16.03.17). Editor-in-Chief of ZEITmagazin and ZEITmagazin MANN, Christoph Amend, gave us an exclusive insight into how the high-profile collaboration came about. “Brigitte Lacombe has worked closely with ZEITmagazin for many years,“ he told us. „In fact, she was the one who inspired us to launch our biannual „International Issue„! She’s both a fantastic photographer and a friend, and we talk about new story ideas whenever we meet. Last summer, Brigitte and I had dinner in Berlin, along with Andreas Wellnitz, our photography consultant. We started talking about Robert De Niro. And in the weeks and months following that dinner, Brigitte helped to make our cover story for the latest issue of ZEITmagazin MANN possible. When I finally met De Niro in New York, he told me how much he admires Brigitte’s work. I couldn’t agree more.“ Pick up a copy of both magazines this week – we have a feeling they’ll become something of a collectors‘ item.
