Men

The first time I moved to Italy I was just a girl.  Well, a girl of twenty-two.  I had just survived four years of college by the beach so looking back I would hardly consider myself grown up at that time. I had one month to focus on a project in the hot Florentine July.  Dabbling between shooting food and shooting men, my teacher Romeo encouraged me to photograph men, as it was something that excited me, made me nervous, and something I desperately wanted to do.

Being somewhat shy and in the aftermaths of heartbreak, I directed my camera outwards, perhaps to get a better understanding of myself as a girl full of freedom.  Upon returning to Italy in 2014, I had to rediscover the courage I had at twenty-two, and found it an even more liberating, unearthing, and beautiful experience to photograph the men I know around the world.
