Two souls

Listen to the sound that comes from my soul when it meets the sun at dawn. Your soul echoes just like mine; they both have the same coloured dresses, the same shades. Whether our hands do not touch each other’s faces, whether our voices do not reach each other’s ears, our souls whisper in the distance, and we dance and live together.

From a fashion story in collaboration with Polina Schadauer-Povarich, creator and founder of Polosophia. Models: Hjordis Lara Hlidberg and Suzannah Gilburt. Make up: Micaela Congia.

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!

Today I want to show you some of the photos taken to the beautiful Laura, a new face from D1Models’ Agency. The time to shoot was limited, still we managed to get a few images I really love. Once at the Barbican centre – a place I like because of its photographic potential – I spent an extra hour admiring its buildings, and found they worked great together with Laura’s portraits. Don’t you think?
