Photos: Jean-Paul Goude’s 40 Years of Controversy

“Everything here is manipulated,” says the photographer, director, and visual artist Jean-Paul Goude of his massive new exhibit at the Padiglione d’Arte Contemporanea inMilan, sponsored by Tod’s. “So Far So Goude” covers 40 years of Goude’s career and his relationship to women—and therefore plenty of controversy, from his racially charged photos of his former lover and muse Grace Jones to the Champagne-topped image of Carolina Beaumont that inspired Kim Kardashian‘s breaking the internet. Get a look inside the show, featuring a stained-glass Jessica Chastain and Naomi Campbell atop a Knysnan elephant, here.
