Ukraine: Oliviero Toscani, can we only think of petrol?

(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 26 – “As long as there is no free movement of people we will not be civilized”, enthusiastically thunders Oliviero Toscani in an interview with ANSA – on the occasion of his 80th birthday, which turns on February 28 – thinking to all the road that still needs to be done, to the world “which becomes more and more elitist with the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer”. Up to Ukraine and the horror of a war that anguishes and worries him, which unleashes his anger (“all worried only about the rising price of gasoline, but is it possible?”) But which is perhaps the only thing that today he wouldn’t want to go and tell: “being a war photographer in a creative way is no longer possible”, he blurts out, “you don’t have to invent anything anymore”. Yet the link between photography and history is very close, he impetuously points out to you, because photography today can be art “much more than the many contemporary works that crowd the galleries”. But more, he urges, “It is the historical memory of the world”. (HANDLE).
