What is your photographic style and how did you go about shooting this photoshoot?
For this photoshoot I wanted to explore my hometown through the eyes of my friends in an intimate way. While revisiting spaces that are so familiar to me, I was curious to find how that resonates with someone being there for the first time, and how that would affect my own relationship to it.
What was your idea for the shoot?
My process unfolds in a very organic manner, I don’t really plan the shots, they just happen. I like to discover what picture I want as I spend time with my subjects, and I find they seamlessly are able to insert themselves in my vision as we go along.
How did you approach it?
My inspiration comes from my muses, the way I view them and how they view themselves. The idea was to portray an intimate travel diary of an otherwise unknown Italian beach town that has its own particular flare, that is already known to me but unknown to my subjects. I was a voyeur to their discovery.
What was the inspiration and how did you convey it through the images?
I’m very free with my process and I value spontaneity in my photography. My pictures have a sense of suspended dream reality that is ultimately revealing to both me and my muses. I strive for timelessness.
