OLIVIERO TOSCANI’s photographs are known to cause shock and scandal: there is for example, the one with the priest and the nun kissing, that one of anorexic model Isabelle Caro posing naked and the one of horses having sexual intercourse. He is also known for creating infamous adverts for fashion brand Benetton during the 80s and 90s, which faced government bans and sparked public protests.
For the fourteenth issue of Schön! We had the great honour of talking to Toscani about his advertisements being seen as politics, his role models, his old college days, being misunderstood and many more heated issues.
Read more about the man that stated, “There are no shocking pictures, there is only shocking reality” in the fourteenth issue of Schön! magazine.
