JESTO: ARTIST CHANGING SKIN

JESTO_10 72

Thanks to my friend rapper/actor/filmmaker Taiyo “HYST” Yamanouchi I had the chance to participate in a singer’s image change.
For his new album campaign, IndieJesto, Jesto, Hyst’s brother, not only chose to reappear on social networks with a completely different look, but he even changed musical genre shifting from rap to pop rock.
On a rainy November evening, I joined the crew led by HYST for the filming of a videoclip.
A quick briefing: they needed backstage shots in black and white and some “street” portraits, again in a high-contrast black and white; in short, they looked at creating a typical vintage atmosphere from other times.
The sets: a second-hand clothing store; a record store; the Navigli canal-sides; and a pub.
The characters: Jesto & friends, an acoustic guitar and pints of beers.
The film and photo crew: Me & HYST
Jesto’s natural attitude in his new skin made my work absolutely easy: I photographed the skin-changing live with my old FujiFilm X30 and I did it before the fans could realize what it would soon be.

#BREMAIN

LON 019_146 72

When politicians in bad faith play with the life of people, some men and women rise up against their lies. “Bremainers” or “Remainers” spend time every day in front of Westminster Hall trying to fight the widespread lack of information that is behind the outcome of the Brexit referendum. As Altiero Spinelli wrote in the Manifesto di Ventotene in 1941, only a free and united Europe will be able to fight against social inequalities and privileges. This series of pics is dedicated to all the gallant fighters I meet in a sunny late January morning in London. (shots taken with FujiFilm X30 e Fuji X100)
