One of my special photographic moments will be available in my Limited Edition shop this Wednesday. This was also the cover image for Chasing A Dream and one of those freaky photographic moments that happens but you never expect it to! So thrilled to be able to share it with you.
The Story Behind The Image:
I was on a shoot in Capri for a fashion magazine and had scouted the main town the day before for possible places to shoot. I loved this wall but at the time there was no graffiti. The fashion editor briefed the model in the morning, she told her “you have come to Capri, last night you fell in love with someone from the Island and this morning you have woken and changed your mind. Today you want to run away.”
The model ran and ran all day till we came to this last spot for the final shoot of the day. Overnight someone (with a broken heart) had graffitied ‘una vita per farmi innamorarmi, cosi presto per dimenticarmi’.
We all stood with our mouths gaping and goosebumps, the graffiti said ‘it took me a lifetime to fall in love with you and so quickly you forgot me.’ It was as though the fashion editor’s thoughts were truly connected to someone’s love story on Capri.
That’s photography for you!
This photo was taken in Capri Italy on slide film, it was then cross processed to give it a strong contrast and added grain. All blur in this image is intentional.
