Papier Mache “cinema” issue editorial shot in Brighton…

The topic of this issue of Papier Mache magazine was the ‘cinema’.

An endless world to be inspired by.

For me it was a deep joy ad an incredible privilege to make something inspired by the cinema, in totally creative freedom.

After evaluating several options and some proposals, I decided to create a story, together with the stylist Kate Van Der Hage, connected to the English movie Quadrophenia (1979).

The movie is inspired by a music album of the band ‘The Who‘, that came out in 1973 (and, afer that, soundtrack of the movie itself). It tells the story of a young mod and it takes place in Brighton, during the Sixties.

Brighton still preserves some seafront views almost equal to that age. I had no doubt: there was the perfect place for the perfect story.

I just let the pictures tell the story.

The day of the photoshoot was a little cold and it also was cloudy, but I’m really very happy about the result.

Until now, it is absolutely one of my favorite photoshoots ever.

I’m very thankful to Kate to her huge help in the management of this pretty complex photoshoot, especially for the big number of  kids involved in it.

Following some images from the editorial, some of them never published.

Il tema di questo numero di Papier Mache era “il cinema”.

Un mondo infinito da cui trarre ispirazioni.

Per me era una gioia profonda e un privilegio poter realizzare qualcosa ispirato al cinema nella più assoluta libertà creativa.

Dopo aver valutato più opzioni e alcune proposte ho deciso di realizzare insieme alla stylist Kate Van Der Hage una storia legata al film “Quadrophenia“, film inglese del 1979.

Il film è ispirato ad un album del gruppo musicale “The Who“, uscito nel 1973, (poi colonna sonora del film stesso) che racconta la storia di un giovane mod, ambientata a Brighton negli anni ’60.

Brighton conserva tutt’ora molti scorci di lungomare pressoché identici a quell’epoca. Quindi non ho avuto dubbi: era il posto perfetto per una storia perfetta.

Il resto lo raccontano le immagini.

Faceva un po’ freddino ed era purtroppo una giornata molto nuvolosa ma sono comunque contentissimo del risultato.

Ad oggi è stato uno dei miei servizi preferiti in assoluto.

Devo ringraziare Kate per il grandissimo aiuto nella logistica di questo servizio abbastanza complesso per l’elevato numero di bambini da gestire.
