Dancing close to the sky

“Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the dishevelled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame.”  W.B. Yeats, The Land of Heart’s Desire

The more I have the chance to work with dancers, the more I fall in love with this art!

See here some of the photos taken to the talented and beautiful Stephanie Collins in a very special location: Trinity Laban Conservatoire!

Secret garden

Hula hoops

“Making up for lost time?”
“Yes,” I say.
“A lot of things were stolen from my childhood. Lots of important things. And now I have to get them back.” Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the shore

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

Exploring Oxford – Children photo-shoot

I met these two lovely children – brother and sister – two Sunday ago in Oxford. During the past three years, since I moved to England, I had the opportunity to photograph them other times and to see them growing up. This is for sure one of the positive aspects of working more often with the same loyal clients: that we better get to know each other, and we all together enjoy the photo shoot with a relaxed mind and an happy heart.

In my English garden

I took these photos some weeks ago. Anna, the model, was leaving England and I thought it would have been great to have a photo-shoot at her home. The wind was blowing and the sun close to set. I found the garden smelling of a perfect nostalgic atmosphere. I simply followed the inspiration of the moment, thinking about my life and the houses I used to live in. I always had a garden, a wild field, or a park where to hide, read, think, and enjoy the sound of the hours. I am thinking about it now – as writing this post is waking my memories up – that it’s a long time I don’t hear cicadas singing all day long. My old room, in Sicily, must resound of their songs right now.
