“No Anorexia” – Isabelle Caro & Oliviero Toscani

Isabelle Caro, born in September 1982. Caro suffered from severe anorexia nervosa from the age of 13.
She died in November 2010. The cause of her death is unknown.
Isabelle’s mother commits suicide in January 2011, unable to cope with the feeling of guilt as she blamed herself for her daughter’s death.

“I had a very complicated childhood, very difficult, very painful. My mother’s big phobia was that I would grow. She spent her time measuring my height. She wouldn’t let me go outside because she’d heard that fresh air makes children grow, and that’s why I was kept at home. It was completely traumatic.”

A picture by photographer Oliviero Toscani, that was showed in a controversial advertising campaign “No Anorexia”, made her “famous”.
