Christina Kruse

INEZ VAN LAMSWEERDE & VINOODH MATADIN photograph CHRISTINA KRUSE, the German super-icon of the ’90s, famous for her platinum hair, pale skin, cobra tattoo, and her fearless independence in front of the camera and on the runway. Now she’s a mother living in New York and working as a photographer. And just when everyone’s tired of all the pretty girls around, she’s back, showing us how the past can flourish in the unpredictible future.
