PHOTOGRAPHY, PHOTOGRAPHED

PHOTOGRAPHY, PHOTOGRAPHED

Fashion is too fast and way too voracious, for what I can see. Images from the best photographers appear on the glossy pages of thousands magazines for a blink of an eye – or as fast as the shutter’s speed capturing their light – and disappear. The process is frightening. It’s like setting up a ... Read More »

SMART MODELS

SMART MODELS

Models on the catwalk are too often seen under the eye of prejudice. It’s true that Linda Evangelista once said she doesn’t get up from her bed for less than 20,000 dollars, causing an uproar of protests from public media. But models do have a brain and sometimes they score much better grades than average ... Read More »

FUTURE OF ADVERTISING

FUTURE OF ADVERTISING

The future of advertising is far from being over.  Creative agencies, products and media empires will conquer new space in the Universe, landing on distant planets, ready to provide, for the joy of all of us, the usual hypnotic entertainment, easy-to-grasp jokes and unlimited fun. Currency will change. Futurologists are convinced money as we know ... Read More »

STACK OF VOGUE

STACK OF VOGUE

How do you build your visual culture? By accumulation or filtration? Do you  stick to the stack or you simply wander with wonder? Are you voracious and feed your heart through your eyes, or viceversa? Are you scared by the mind-numbing explosion of images, blogged and reblogged in a disorienting game of mirrors? Because I ...

HANDFACES

HANDFACES

I’m surprised by how many great photographers arre showing up lately. But just a few of them are really surprising. One of them (they are two but they work as one) is the talented couple Lamsweerde/Matadin. I think they truly make the difference, adding an original and simple idea that is memorable. Read More »

SEX, MONEY, BLOOD.

SEX, MONEY, BLOOD.

THE TAX MAN. In July 2009 a team of archaeologists led by Scott Rubazky, appointed professor of Natural History at the Virginia University, discovered a fossil that is going to re-write the history of evolution. The 500,000 year old specimen (pictured above) is probably the great-grandfather – and godfather – of every kind of bloodsucker ... Read More »

THE ENERGY FOR ALL OF ASS.

THE ENERGY FOR ALL OF ASS.

Oil prices are going to grow steadily in the near future. Nuclear power, after Japan, will be turned off, and what we are left with is just a fistful of alternative sources lke solar panels, hydroelectric dams and – well –  Earth Wind & Fire, which is probably the most efficient of the three. Fortunately ... Read More »

THE MAGIC TREE

THE MAGIC TREE

The Magic Tree was a painting I did a few years ago for a place which welcomed orphans and children victims of parents’ abuse. The concept is a tridimensional painting with real golden fruits growing out of the wall, as if the tree were a real one. I added some secret drawers (visible hanging from ... Read More »

DON’T DRINK AND RIDE

DON’T DRINK AND RIDE

Personal work against the habit of DRINKING AND RIDING which – by the way – kills, every year, almost one million bikers around the world. Read More »

THE ABYSS OF YOURSELF

THE ABYSS OF YOURSELF

This is the Bessel crater, as seen from the Apollo 15 spacecraft. Huge craters like this one are the result of big meteorites impacting on lunar soil. The energy produced by such collision is unmeasureable but it’s strong enough to change a satellite’s trajectory. This one is another crater recently found on planet Mars, shot ... Read More »

A NEWBORN’S POINT OF VIEW

A NEWBORN’S POINT OF VIEW

What kind of world are we going to present to future generations? I tried to imagine the babies’ point of view, the very moment they are going to leave their mother’s womb. Their first glimpse of the world comes from this narrow slit. What is like to pass through the door, leaving the warmth of ... Read More »

NO FAKES!

NO FAKES!

What happens if the mavericks of fashion find an agreement with the Cirkus freaks? What you see here is a possible scenario. A poster campaign in praise of the brand, where wild animals warn you against fake Louis Vuitton or the usual illegal Dior crap you find at street corners. This could work so well. ... Read More »

AMBIGUITY UNIVERSITY

AMBIGUITY UNIVERSITY

THE AMBIGUITY UNIVERSITY is a virtual place where language is analyzed for its poetic split and the nuances between pun and fun are explored. The potential is big. And the danger is even bigger. An example: Mean words always mean something mean. It’s tautological, of course. But that’s what I mean. And, since I said ... Read More »

FETISH PROPAGANDA

FETISH PROPAGANDA

Think about how many things you can do with your feet. Beside foot massage and footsie of course. Feet are the foundation of our body. The nervous system terminal, pumping blood at every step (feet are considered like a second heart by Chinese medicine). We stand on them, we walk around, we run, we explore ... Read More »

LIFE IS SHORTS

LIFE IS SHORTS

Life is short. Just four letters. The question is: why don’t we see more shorts around? Shorts are ecological: they need less fabrics. Take jeans, for instance: out of a pair of jeans you can obtain three pair of shorts. Or a pair of shorts plus a shirt, or two shorts plus a bikini, one ... Read More »

THE POWER OF BRANDS 2

THE POWER OF BRANDS 2

Another personal work. It’s a sort of a journey, this time using the symbols of mobility, their restless energy and glory coming out from rusty wrecks, vintage ambulances and forgotten leftovers. This is us, torn apart and splitted between the mundane parfum of the brand, its artificial, human, flighty inconsistence, and the implacable law of ... Read More »

BOOTS & BUTTS

BOOTS & BUTTS

BOOTS & BUTTS is not a campaign against tobacco. It’s a series of minimalist illustrations to support anoressic cool models. Please keep your diet rigorously, eat California plums and drink gallons of water. We want you transparent on that damn’ catwalk. Read More »

AFTERLIFE OF UNDERWEAR

AFTERLIFE OF UNDERWEAR

We made our life miserable by stripping off all good values. We live in a beautiful, neon-lit emptiness. Our heart in a vacuum. Now, what do you pretend? We survive trends but products will survive us. The flighty consistence of fashion, with its multiple, synchronic, ubiquitous trends force to stop and think about substantial things. ... Read More »
