I love photographing friends and watching them transform in front of my lens. Nicoletta had a strong connection to the archetype of the Dark Lady in the film noir of the 40’s and we really had fun playing with these roles. There is so much Light and Beauty in her darkness.
“I felt like I was a 40’s actress dark lady being photographed, then a model in a Vogue shoot, then Marilyn in her bedroom photos, the melancholic femme fatale etc etc. I loved doing the photo shoot with you, it allowed me to play like I have never done before. I felt like I was role playing so many aspects of myself in the container of safety, trust and love you created.
How wonderful. Forever grateful for this experience. I can’t wait to put a portrait on my wall with no shyness at all. ”
