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.

Dovile – Natural beauty

I hardly ever say I am happy with the photos I take. I always feel I have to improve my technique and be more creative, but this time I have to confess I am really pleased with the portraits taken to the beautiful Dovile. And the magic of it is that we did not do or plan anything special, if not walking around Alexandra Road, in London, and getting inspired by its architecture and the mood of the day, while chatting about our lives. It is true: “less is more”. I strongly believe in that!

Hula hoops

“Making up for lost time?”
“Yes,” I say.
“A lot of things were stolen from my childhood. Lots of important things. And now I have to get them back.” Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the shore

Thanks a lot to Amy Hunter for modelling again for me, and for wearing two beautiful pinafores she designed and made!
