Heinz Schattner has the sense of the image within him. The image and its authenticity. Through a sensitive use of the camera, this combination translates into images that are rich in humanity, beauty and a sincere reflection on the profound meaning of life. Schattner first came to photography at a very young age and at just 14 one of his shots was published for the first time.
Born in Germany, Schattner matured artistically in Paris and London and has always loved Italy, where he currently lives and works. He was introduced to the world of photography by internationally renowned artists with whom he had the chance to work as an assistant from a young age. He first set out on his own in the world of fashion. Among his first important collaborations are the Italian magazines Vogue Bambini and Vogue Uomo belonging to the Cond Nast group, followed by numerous others around the world. Further on in his career he became artistic director of television advertising campaigns, as well as creater of photographic books.
Looking back it is clear that for Heinz Schattner fashion has always been the key to accessing provocative and though-provoking contexts and moods. He portrays the imperfections of women and men as something sublime. While focusing on the subject, be it a human figure or an object, he never neglects the context that surrounds it, offering glimpses of authenticity that time will not be able to erase.
Since 2003, the Veronesi foundation has been pursuing a single objective: promoting the progress of science, health resources and ethical growth—civilly and in society.
"Science must always work for and with the human being,” declared the founder, Umberto Veronesi, “this means respect of the person, research for solutions and strategies that can improve the quality of life, offering new hopes for the present and for the generations in the future”.
At the core of the foundation there is barrier-free and scientific research that invests in young talent from each country, working toward answers to new questions using innovative and high-profile research programs dedicated to the prevention and diagnosis of tumors, cardiovascular disease and neuroscience, and the discovery of cure strategies that are efficient and beneficial to the entire community.
Unique in its genesis, the foundation has pushed its own interests outside the walls of a laboratory, encouraging social involvement and education in science. The Veronesi Foundation is also active with its devotion to science so that the results from science become available to everybody. Particularly, the foundation spreads the principles of prevention and correct lifestyle to keep disease away, even the most serious diseases that we can avoid just by changing our behavior.
