Oliviero Toscani (Milan, 1942), internationally renowned photographer and communicator, has always focused on the act ofimaginingas a conscious moment of choice as a photographer. Capable of driving others and himself creatively in the marvellous search for discovery and conquest, he uses transgression and provocation, forces that belong to art, and makes diversity a value against uniformity and for a free expression of communication.
This volume presents only the section concerning images from Oliviero Toscani’s formative period at theKunstgewerbeschule in Zurich between 1961 and 1965, where his innovatory and visionary verve was already clear. This section of the exhibition was created thanks to the important loan from the Archives of the ZHdK – Zürcher Hochschule der Künste Zurich.
