Geometries

When I feel restless, when my days run too fast and I have not enough time to dream and to live, I look for a place and a though where everything may return to order. Wherever I find lines, geometries and minimalism, I can start breathing again.

This photo shoot was realised in order to explore the potential – speaking about composition – of a tennis court, as first done last year with my “Tennis court loneliness” series. Thanks a lot to my lovely and talented friend Dovile Ciapaité for helping me to create the photos below!

Hula hoops

“Yes,” I say.

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

Friends – A walk in the field of our memories

I won’t start this blog post saying how much friendship is important, and how redeeming, especially for those who live far from their country, and have all their best friends miles away from them. The three girls I photographed in a spring sunny morning belong to that group of friends separated by land and sea; but what’s nice of them is that they always find the time to be together, despite the distance (Italy-England). This photo shoot is a proof of their bond, and the evident empathy of their common memories and future wishes.

Thanks to Livia, Stefania and Virginia for sharing this with me!
