Liberty window display

Wondering around in this beautiful and currently snowy city, I came across one of my favourite buildings in London: Liberty, the traditional and enchanting department store that is essentially British in every possible way. I am always very fond of their windows, always creative and with a great taste, never being over the top or tacky, and I believe, their current window display is one of my favourites I've seen. It is incredibly simple, but very conceptual at the same time. The choice of colours also caught my attention, very warm and welcoming, a clash in this cold and white weather we are having. It makes me go inside and live all this elegant mood they are displaying. A big round of applause to Liberty's visual merchandising team!
You can have a look at some of their windows here.
Some pictures I took today:

Cuban fun shoot

I just realised I've never posted this shoot in the blog! Shame on you Olimpia!
For this menswear shoot, I was inspired by Wanny di Filippo and by the colourful and decadent cuban architecture. My teacher, photographer Michele Turriani, captured James Burke (at the time with Nevs), and we had loads of fun. James was such a sweetheart and helped me a lot!
We shot this around May 2012. Hope you like it!

It's snowing and I love it!

So happy that it finally started snowing, and that everything around me is fluffy white! Definitely magical! Like I always say, what is the point of being very cold without some snow? Now it finally came and I am trilled. Here is a picture of my beautiful mommy, in her own time in London when she was young, in the 60s... I simply adore this picture.
Hope you are enjoying your weather whenever you are! LET IT SNOW!

William Klein + Daido Moriyama Tate exhibition

Thinking about my life in London, probably one of the things I'm going to miss the most are the exhibitions. Museums, galleries, and so many access to art... I'm really going to miss all of this, because I know that Brazil is still not in this level. Today I went to Tate's latest exhibition on William Klein and the photographer Daido Moriyama, and I was really impressed. Not expecting nothing major, I was amazed by the quality and the eye that William Klein has, and made some great discoveries about his work. I think it is really interesting how intrigued he is regarding people, forms, and shapes. His fashion pictures are also incredibly interesting, and aesthetically beautiful, we can see that he is always thinking outside the box. He also directed some short films and movies, one of them being "Who are you Polly Magoo", which I love - for me the epitome of 60's coolness. Klein was by far my favourite in the exhibition. Here are some of his work that caught my attention (sorry for the picture quality, my blackberry camera is not a very good one!):


Great NY poster

While Klein was more a people's photographer, with a sophisticated style, Daido Moriyama is, in my opinion and comprehension, more concerned with texture and concept in his photos. Most of the pictures have a grotesque bias, and it bothered me a little. But I found some amazing shots, really creative point of view to the every day life. His cropping was incredibly creative, and gave me a lot of ideas for future shoots. Here are some of his work:

Really liked this one, mesmerising!

Polaroids! A room full of them!

And of course, as I (still) can't afford a book or a poster, I bought some postcards of my favourite works.
Really nice exhibition, worth visiting. Until 20th January.
