The end of a dream

“Dreams get broken sometimes. She wanted to dance, she only wanted to dance, but she had to bury her ballet shoes in the shadows. She still smells the flowers of the field where she said goodbye to the past.”

A big thanks to the model Cara, the best ballerina I could work with for this project.

The first winter blossom

These photos patiently waited for some months in a folder of my computer, so now I am extremely happy to share them with you. I have to thank Rosanna, my model: she was a great professional and a brave girl (I remember how cold was that day!), and I also want to thank Oxford, its beautiful parks, the flowers of its fields and the silent grace of its light. It was my first spring in England and I fell in love with it!

All’angolo… la vita

Two weeks ago I had the pleasure to have in front of my camera a male model, Neil Chatterjee. I really enjoyed working with him (so thank you Neil!). Here a few conceptual photos I took on a rusty and old platform we found along the Thames river. And when life seems too far and we walk and lay down on crosses, suddenly we discover something that is coming to save us.

Un immenso campo fiorito

A lot of flowered fields are adorning the English countryside these days! How could I stay away from them? Here are some photos I took two weeks ago to the lovely Hannah Zainuddn, as a conclusion of our photo shoot on the Thames bank (see the previous post). Feel yourself absorbed in this yellow light!
