Theory: Violent Fashion, Steven Klein

I am currently researching and writing an essay on the theme of violent images in fashion photography, and have been looking at the photographer Steven Klein.  He shot the Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2007 campaign, which later became banned.  Almost every single one of his images portrays violence of some sort, and whilst they are beautifully shot, I am questioning why there is a need for this to sell fashion...

Banned as it was seen to portray rape
