It was all oral fixations, chi-chis and flesh for famed photographer Harri Peccinotti. The London-born photographer made it big in the mid-60s with his fashion editorials, album covert art, book jackets and two infamous Pirelli calendars. (You've, no doubt, seen the sunflower shot before.) He worked as the Art Director for Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone and Vogue and he also started Nova, a women's magazine that was less about embroidering, baking and getting out grass stains and more about other smart stuff that hadn't been offered in print to the ladies before.

's take on T and A, Peccinotti was doing it in a classier way and he was making statements about race, gender, politics and power at the same time. He also didn't star in his own photography. Just saying, Tez.
Peccinotti's book H.P. is amazing. Go buy it
