Sergio Calderoni: the inspiration and images
Everything was born accidentally with the aim to create a playful story using giant wearable claybased hands and feet. During the embryonic stage with the make-up artist Manuela Balducci and the set designer who made the props, Michele de Filippis, we decided to involve the stylist Alessandro Ferrari. From that day on, what would have been a simple project, became a fashion story, as a result of a friendship born between us during the post-lockdown afternoons and the desire to live and have fun again.
Lampoon introduction: Sergio Calderoni
After the main idea and some researches, I came across into a Walt Disney cartoon called Mickey and the beanstalk in which the antagonist was a giant playful kid and all of a sudden, his gestures became the mood of the shooting. I don’t have a specific photographic style, I’m constantly influenced by music, especially jazz. I love French movies from the 60’s, JH Lartigue, post-impressionist painters and indie movies from the 90’s. I mostly use film cameras, small and medium format and then I make prints of the photos from the roll.
