Here come the colours

Back to the first days of spring, with this series about colours, youth, joy. I believe this sentence by Kahlil Gibran describes very well the idea behind it: “Let me, O let me bathe my soul in colours; let me swallow the sunset and drink the rainbow”.

A big thank to my talented and patient girls (you could not see that from the pictures, but it was extremely cold!), Marianna Saver (model), Anne Aurelie Pillet (stylist), Kayleigh Keen (make up artist).

The forest girl

A rainy enchanted forest, a misty horizon, and a girl, white delicate skin and red cheeks, who walks wearing an embroidered cape and a long magic dress where flowers bloom around gold yarns. I see silent dreams follow her steps.

Harriet

I am excited to share with you these photos taken a few weeks ago to the lovely and talented Harriet, and assisted by a sweet Italian photographer I recently had the chance to meet in Oxford, Elisabetta. This was my first photo-shoot of 2018, and I could not desire for a different and better one: relaxed, spontaneous, focused on real photos, real beauty and real joy!

Model: Harriet Russell/Photography assistant: Elisabetta Vacchetto

My sweet girl

“Pan, who and what art thou?” he cried huskily.
“I’m youth, I’m joy,” Peter answered at a venture, “I’m a little bird that has broken out of the egg.” J. M. Barrie, Peter Pan

From a photo-shoot – the last one I still had to share from 2017 – about youth and school memories with model Iman Assaber, stylist Alessandra Bertoni, and make up artist Micaela Congia. Thanks to my great Italian team for the job done!
