Featuring Natasha Pugliesi
“I was thinking about new projects, trying to figure out some kind of raw atmosphere, something to make me fill pleased in the end, so first of all I chose model/actress Natasha Pugliese, we had worked together some years ago and I remember we had a pretty good chemistry. She’s is half Brazilian half Swiss, she got that exotic amazing beauty not to mention the fact she is a really easy going person. The next step was the scenery, I found a nice hotel next to the Olympic games facilities (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) so I rented a penthouse for a day use, everything was perfect, the weather, sometimes sunny sometimes cloudy, the mood very intimate, sensual, hot.
Now talking about the concept, I decided to work with washed colors, I love that winter sun coming from the windows and over exposing, that something peculiar in my photos, I don’t use a lot of contrast also but I always put one object to divide the attention with the model, in that case was the red NIKE.”
