You’ll never know how beautiful those red bricks are. Until they rip your heart out with coldness on those grey landscapes. And the smell of beer coming from the wooden floor. And the early suppers. And the lonely nights. I can only thank my life full of strangers in London.
Oh, weddings in forests, my very favourite. The colours, the light, and who doesn’t love to be immersed in nature? This wedding was out of a fairy tale but it was mostly human and down to earth. Smiles, laughs and hugs could be seen from every angle. What a delight to photograph happy people. There is nothing more beautiful than a smile.
This is a series of photos I took for “Blue” a short film created by my talented friend Naida, inspired in the book “Just Kids” by Patti Smith.I used a Hasselblad 500C, the same model Robert Mapplethorpe used to take Patti’s iconic portrait for her album “Horses”. It was a special moment a couple of friends shared in honour of their youth heroes.
