Rue

“There was something awesome in the thought of the solitary mortal standing by the open window and summoning in from the gloom outside the spirits of the nether world.” Arthur Conan Doyle

A few portraits of the beautiful Rue for D1Models. Make up by the talented Micaela Congia.

Hop hop hopscotch

“Grown up, and that is a terribly hard thing to do. It is much easier to skip it and go from one childhood to another.” F. Scott Fitzgerald

It might be that summer is close and with it my desire to go home, but childhood memories act sometimes as ghosts I cannot really escape from. Here is another series where I try to show that, with the help of the lovely Ophélie.

I will protect you

“What I want is to be needed. What I need is to be indispensable to somebody. Who I need is somebody that will eat up all my free time, my ego, my attention. Somebody addicted to me. A mutual addiction.” Chuck Palahniuk

Di ghiaccio e cemento – Ice and concrete

The world is going to disappear. Rain, falling down, is turning streets and walls into ice. Sun rarely appears on the frozen concentre. Ghostly rays recall memories in lovers’ hearts. Who is sitting alone on the edge of a crevice can see its bottom blue like the ocean.

A special thanks to my sweet model Virginia Tozzi!

The first winter blossom

These photos patiently waited for some months in a folder of my computer, so now I am extremely happy to share them with you. I have to thank Rosanna, my model: she was a great professional and a brave girl (I remember how cold was that day!), and I also want to thank Oxford, its beautiful parks, the flowers of its fields and the silent grace of its light. It was my first spring in England and I fell in love with it!

Portraits, portraits

Dear all, I was pretty absent in the last period, because I focused most on my new website (www.flaviacatenaph.com), but now I am back to share with you a selection of my latest photos. I want to say thanks to my models: Agnieszka, Anna and Dana. I had a great time with them and I hope you will enjoy the work we did together.
