"Light and colours are my storytellers. People are the soul of that stories. For me, photography is more than taking a good shot. Photography is opening your mind, making new friends, discovering great stories from the people you are photographing, going to amazing locations... I consider myself really lucky to work with people this way. It is incredible how much we can learn from others just photographing them."
“Love takes off the masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.” – James Baldwin – Giovanni’s Room is a novel by James Baldwin published in 1956. The book is told from the perspective of David, an American man living in Paris struggling with his sense of self. He falls in love with an Italian bartender named Giovanni and comes face to face with his desire. The relationship turns volatile as David struggles to accept himself as a gay man and his relationship with Giovanni. One of the reasons I love books so much is that they give language to my own feelings and thoughts, and James Baldwin has a way of articulating complicated ideas clearly and concisely. This shoot was an homage to him and his work.
