A series of black and white frames, taken during the last four years for different clients, explore my vision of the fashion world. Just a bunch of frames and words to let the imagination fly…

This series of shots was taken in two different moments, November 2015, during photo artist Federico Garibaldi‘s casting for Rendez-vous de la mode magazine’s cover feature and early March 2016. The March shooting session – the last two shots – was dedicated to the Lucio Costa brand – Garibaldi was one of the authors of the biographical volume SO LUCIO! (I participated in the book with a historical essay and a couple of shots). X30 was the ideal camera to record Garibaldi at work: its street DNA was perfect for documenting a photo session and the inner world of the fashion system.

I’m proud to announce, as one of the contributors, the release of the book dedicated to milanese fashion stylist Lucio Costa. In the volume, edited by friend Roberto Pelizzoni, you can read my historical essay on the 1980s in Milan and see a couple of b&w fashion shots taken in my raw street mood. ENJOY IT!
You are invited to the presentation of the SO LUCIO!, Lucio Costa biographical book, and of the SS17 Capsule Collection
