Hanna – Rhythm and harmony at the Barbican

Hanna Hughes is an amazing contemporary dancer and a very sweet girl. I had an inspiring photo-session with her last month at the Barbican centre, in London. I found beauty in every movement she did, and I loved the way poses blended together with buildings’ lines to compose intriguining images. So thanks again to Hanna and to the fascinating city of London which always helps me to create and to dream of something new!

Città vuota

“Era la mia città, la città vuota/all’alba, piena di un mio desiderio./Ma il mio canto d’amore, il mio più vero/era per gli altri una canzone ignota.” Sandro Penna

“Città vuota”, or “Empty city” in English, is a small series I shoot last October in London at the Barbican centre, following the suggestions of Hannah Zainuddin (that I thank for being again a wonderful model), as I was looking for an urban space with a minimal, modern and at the same time potentially desolated look where to work. The Barbican has all of it and still more. Sadly that day – mainly because of my train delay – I could not explore the area as much as I would have liked, but I will be there again soon to capture what the Italian poem above (that speaks about desolation, solitude, and love) is whispering to my mind.

Another myself

I have photographed Silvia in a cold December morning, a few weeks ago. Now that I am back to Italy for the Christmas holidays, I finally found the time to edit the pictures, and I must say I really love their mood (a little bit unusual from me). I take the occasion to wish you all a Happy New Year!
