    Eyes – 1994

    At the beginning of the 1990s, Oliviero Toscani created Fabrica, a communication research centre, and once again, with a view to exalting differences, he chose as his symbol the face of an African with two different eyes. That photograph struck David Bowie so much that he decided to write a song about it, Black Tie, White Noise.

    Lady with hat – 1973

    Donna Jordan in a photograph for Vogue, where Oliviero Toscani ironically quotes the cliché of the fashion images of the past, where the models were distant, untouchable and reserved for the powerful sheikhs.

    Wolf and lamb – 1990

    Oliviero Toscani often plays on the overturning of stereotypes and then a lamb becomes black and a wolf becomes white.

    Peasant – 1977

    Oliviero Toscani has always been fascinated by Mike Disfarmer, who was the first to photograph American farmers on a white background at the beginning of the 1900s, using natural light. This peasant from Tuscany is photographed by Toscani following the teaching of what he considers one of his Masters. It is the beginning of a journey that will lead Toscani to investigate the human condition through portraits.

    One of Oliviero Toscani's most iconic photographs used as a United Colors of Benetton campaign, this image shows once again that it is not equality but difference that unites.

    The Pointer Sisters – 1975

    It was the year of The Pointer Sisters' third album, shortly before Bonnie's departure for a solo career. They weren't known at all at the time, but Oliviero Toscani saw in them the multi-ethnic force with which American music would revolutionize the world.

    Blindfolded women – 2005

    The obsession of the body. A group of blindfolded women just in the points where cosmetic surgery is most used, which distorts the human body concealing it.

    Peppers – 2014

    Oliviero Toscani trained at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Zurich, born as a legacy of the Bauhaus: at the academy Toscani studied in particular Johannes Itten's theory of color and even in the apparently simplest photographs, such as two peppers, we find an in-depth study of chromatic relationships.

    Federico Fellini – 1975

    Oliviero Toscani remembers the curiosity of Fellini, who entered the courtyards of the houses in to "peek". Often the director went to visit Toscani when he was in Rome, watching him while he worked. This portrait was made by Toscani in a studio in the city.

    Unifirm – 1994

    This photo became the symbolic image of the horror of the former Jugoslavia war, without showing deaths, without showing bombs. With the bloody uniform of a Croatian soldier who had just been killed, Oliviero Toscani displayed the concrete result of the war.

    Water – 2004

    Conflicts over water in the world are a sad reality and its control means the guarantee of a power exercised on the skin of the poorer: is it possible that we can erect a protection of barbed wires on a good that is the right of every human being? This photograph was exhibited at the "Acqua" exhibition in Milan.

    Amish – 2005

    On the occasion of the launch of the world's first hybrid car, Oliviero Toscani chooses an Amish family for the campaign of the Toyota Prius. It is well known that Amish reject all modernity. They would never buy a car, not even an environmentally friendly one....

    Alice Cooper – 1974

    At the beginning of the seventies it was very difficult to explain to newspapers the importance of the icons that were forming and that would become established. Oliviero Toscani became a reference point for underground culture, especially music. Thanks to him, numerous singers were published. One example is Alice Cooper, photographed in New York for Vogue.

    Fish – 2014

    This fish is one of the many products of a chain of supermarkets for which Oliviero Toscani was in charge of communication: a series of images that transformed the perception of a supermarket into a sort of “wunderkammern” of food rather than a commercial exercise.
