Hello, Sara! We’re very happy to welcome you for this 4th issue of ‘Marcel & me’.
Good afternoon, Hervé! Thanks for your invitation.
For our readers who don’t yet know you, may you introduce yourself ?
With pleasure. I spent my childhood in Porto S. Stefano, a small town by the sea. There is where my passion for photography began to develop. I started shooting at live music concerts, music is my other great interest.
As I turned 18 I moved to Florence and started studying Art History. I started to be interested in fashion right away since I figured out that I could find professional opportunities in this field. Anyway, I never thought photography could become my job but I ended up getting more and more requests for shootings month after month and so i began to dedicate myself full time to this activity.
The thing I like the most of working in fashion is that I get continuous incentives and ideas: every work is different from the other, I get to meet people from all around the world and I’m always traveling. At the moment I work in Florence and Milan most of the time, even though I have started working abroad too. Last September, I have been shooting for Cosmopolitan in London.
Here are some really interesting experiences! So, all we only need to do from now is to wish you an amazing career.
Sara, as you told us, you’re currently based in Italy. Could you recommend three places you love most?
Well, if you happen to be in Florence, you must go to the Mostodolce and order a ‘Martellina’, which is my favorite beer in the whole world. Leaving food behind for a moment, I would say that the Guggenheim Museum in Venice is one of my favorite places. I went back there several times, there’s something magical about the atmosphere that place has. Also, there you would be able to see some of my favorite paintings, such as Max Ernst’s “The Robing of the Bride”.
Another special place for me is the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome [click here for a virtual tour], I’ve seen many beautiful live shows there (such as Wilco or Atlas Sound). I think that a beautiful location is fundamental for a live music performance and this is why I always try to go and see my favorite bands play there instead of other venues that may be closer to the area in which I live.
Sara, I think many of us envy you. Italy is definitely a gorgeous country. Thanks from us all! Now, are you feeling ready to answer the famous Marcel Proust’s questionnaire?
