The folks over at Copyranter found these new Sisley ads for fall—the series is called "Let it Flow." The Benetton company issued this statement about the ads:
The normality of the atmosphere of suburban New York is seen through Richardson’s unorthodox eye. If, on the one hand, in his paradoxical way he exposes the irony that is behind even the most innocent attitudes, on the other, he perceives and perfectly illustrates the collection’s nature, which seeks above all to play at taking us by surprise.Uh, we're not sure what that means, but, apparently, it translates to a model on the floor of a supermarket surrounded by cucumbers.
Terry Richardson, the photographer, remember, is the one who's (in)famous for photographing his hoo-hoo and, earlier this year, faced a slew of allegations that he's kind of sleazy. So, what's the model doing with the cucumbers in the next photo? Click through to find out.
