              Projecting fantasy and desire back into nude photography, into some of the most famed years of the Pirelli calendar and into the portraiture of the world's most famous artists, actors, and models, Giacobetti has created some of the genre's quintessential images of the last half c...entury. Famous for blurring the lines between photography and painting, craft and art, Giacobetti's series--Zebras, Irises, Hymn, the Bacon portraits--have, according to many, distilled the beauty of the human form.
