Heather

“In a world that grows more and more rigid, industrialised and concrete-paved every day, the sight of a sunny field teeming with wildflowers can almost feel like something from a fairy tale.”

These are the words that introduce my fashion story “Heather”, published on Whim Online Magazine, and that entirely describe what I felt that day in August, while shooting in those beautiful summer fields in Buckinghamshire. It seemed like to be back in a glorious romantic past and so far from the modern world that for a moment being lost sounded like a new exciting adventure.

Thanks a lot to my beautiful model/stylist and make up artist Martina Sukupova Davidson, and again to Whim Magazine! Here is the published photo-shoot: http://www.whimmagazine.com/2017/10/photoshoot-heather-flavia-catena/

Apollineum

Today I want to share with you a selection of images from a fashion photo-shoot done with the very talented and lovely Travis S C-Knight and James Pett, both dancers at the Wayne McGregor Company. It is always a pleasure to work with such nice people and artists, and it was very inspiring, in this case, to play both as a photographer and as a stylist. We had fun, despite the cold of the day, and I think we ended up with some nice photos. But I leave you judge this. I can’t wait to work again with these two! Thank you for all you have beautifully done, guys!

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!

On a boat

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to photograph these two lovely sisters, Charlotte and Lisa. We had to improvise the photo-shoot a bit because of a series of reasons, but when we saw that abandoned boat on the Thames river, I thought once again that improvisation is not something to be scared of. For sure it is something I always learn from…

Thanks to Charlotte and Lisa for their help, smiles and laughs!

Playground – Shadows of my youth

E poi un giorno li ritrovò deserti, il prato, lo scivolo, l’altalena. Le ombre del passato si allungavano al loro fianco, i ricordi dell’infanzia erano pronti ad evaporare. Così decise di accompagnarli nella loro partenza, stendendosi accanto ad essi, toccandoli un’ultima volta con mano, assecondando il vento e la luce.

Un immenso campo fiorito

A lot of flowered fields are adorning the English countryside these days! How could I stay away from them? Here are some photos I took two weeks ago to the lovely Hannah Zainuddn, as a conclusion of our photo shoot on the Thames bank (see the previous post). Feel yourself absorbed in this yellow light!
