Cosa succede quando cerchi di unire le tue più grandi passioni? Io ho deciso di provarci qualche mese fa e ho dato vita ad un progetto probabilmente infinito.
Fotografo da tantissimo tempo e una delle mie prerogative è quella di rappresentare la parte più affascinante dei miei soggetti. L’estetica e la ricerca del bello per me sono cose importantissime. Tutto il mio lavoro gira intorno alla creazione di un immagine onirica, di una bellezza ideale e un po’ decadente.
Sono una di quelle persone che quando pensa a qualcosa ci aggiunge la colonna sonora, la musica mi accompagna costantemente nella vita da quando ero una dodicenne che cercava di tradurre i testi delle canzoni con il vocabolario.
Un giorno ho pensato che sarebbe stato bello tradurre in foto alcune canzoni e gli Smashing Pumpkins sono stati la scelta più naturale: sono il mio gruppo preferito da sempre, hanno dei testi pazzeschi e il progetto così sarebbe diventato anche un tributo a loro.
Non è stato facile ma nemmeno impossibile. E una grande parte del merito va alle mie modelle perché sono davvero dei fenomeni.
Ho condiviso tutto su Instagram perché è la piattaforma che permette di ricevere una visibilità maggiore se usata con criterio. Infatti il mio lavoro è stato visto anche da Billy Corgan, leader della band. Tutto il resto è storia.
(cliccando sulle singole immagini verrete rediretti su instagram. Le modelle sono state taggate: andate a vedere anche i loro profili perché ne vale la pena.)
First image from my series dedicated to the Smashing Pumpkins. This photo is for the song My love is Winter and features my muse and best friend @zombiegogo ❄️ Lonely draw Sides grow dimmer Spellbound all I waste the hour My love is winter My love is lost Silent fog Let's pass and wither From the cold that saws me flat My love is winter My love is lost There is love enough for the both of us There is more than prayers made To be with you My love is lost My love is winter My love is lost My love is winter There is love enough for the both of us There are more than prayers of you Sacred hold in my mirror Were you told there is no rest? My love is winter My love is lost There is love enough for the both of us There is love enough There is love There is love enough for the both of us There is love enough There is love There is love, love, love @smashingpumpkins @williampcorgan @jamesihaofficial @chamberdrums @jjjschroeder
Second one for my project / The Smashing Pumpkins tribute - The song is Today and I was influenced by the amazing video. I have tried to recreate that 90s feel with post production and I have used the poster with the single cover. The model is the fantastic @ilariapozzi__ 🚌 Today is the greatest Day I've ever known Can't live for tomorrow Tomorrow's much too long I'll burn my eyes out Before I get out I wanted more Than life could ever grant me Bored by the chore Of saving face Today is the greatest Day I've ever known Can't wait for tomorrow I might not have that long I'll tear my heart out Before I get out Pink ribbon scars That never forget I tried so hard To cleanse these regrets My angel wings Were bruised and restrained My belly stings Today is Today is.... @williampcorgan @smashingpumpkins @jamesihaofficial @chamberdrums @jjjschroeder
Third photo for my project dedicated to The Smashing Pumpkins. The song today is "Ava Adore". The model is my friend and amazing human @blooma_blossom 🥀 🥀🥀It's you that I adore You'll always be my whore You'll be the mother to my child And a child to my heart We must never be apart We must never be apart Lovely girl you're the beauty in my world Without you there aren't reasons left to find And I'll pull your crooked teeth You'll be perfect just like me You'll be a lover in my bed And a gun to my head We must never be apart We must never be apart In you I see dirty In you I count stars In you I feel so pretty In you I taste god In you I feel so hungry In you I crash cars We must never be apart Drinking mercury To the mystery of all that you should ever seek to find Lovely girl you're the murder in my world Dressing coffins for the souls I've left behind In time We must never be apart And you'll always be my whore 'Cause you're the one that I adore And I'll pull your crooked teeth You'll be perfect just like me In you I feel so dirty in you I crash cars In you I feel so pretty in you I taste god We must never be apart 🥀 @smashingpumpkins @williampcorgan @chamberdrums @jamesihaofficial @jjjschroeder
Another one for my project dedicated to my favorite band, The Smashing Pumpkins. In this one my best friend @zombiegogo is "Thru The Eyes Of Ruby". Listen to it too, please. 🥀Wrap me up in always And drag me in with maybes, yeah Your innocence is treasure, your innocence is death Your innocence is all I have Breathing underwater And living under glass And if you spin your love around The secrets of your dreams You may find your love is gone And is not quite what it seemed To appear to disappear Beneath all your darkest fears I believe in never I believe in all the way But belief is not to notice, belief is just some faith And faith can't help you to escape And with this ring I wed thee true And with this ring I wed thee now And with this ring I play so dead But no one's asking for the truth, so let me tell you If you spin your love around The secrets of your dreams You may find your love is gone And is not quite what it seemed To appear to disappear Beneath all your darkest fears To the revelations of fresh faced youth No one will come to save you So speak your peace in the murmurs drawn But youth is wasted on the young Your strength is my weakness, your weakness my hate My love for you just can't explain Why we're forever frozen, forever beautiful Forever lost inside ourselves The night has come to hold us young The night has come to hold us young The night has come to hold us young The night has come to hold us young The night has come to hold us young The night has come to hold us young
Porcelina of the Vast Oceans 🌊 new tribute photo for my project dedicated to The Smashing Pumpkins 🌊 💙💙As far as you take me That's where I believe The realm of soft delusions Floating on the leaves On a distant shoreline She waves her arms to me As all the thought police Are closing in for sleep The dilly dally Of my bright lit stay The steam of my misfortunes Has given me the power to be afraid And in my mind I'm everyone And in my mind Without a care in this whole world Without a care in this whole world Without a care in this life It's what you take that makes it right I'm beautiful, you're beautiful As beautiful as the sun Wonderful, you're wonderful As wonderful as they come And I can't help but feel attached To the feelings I can't even match With my face pressed up to the glass, wanting you In the slipstream Of thoughtless thoughts The light of all that's good The light of all that's true To the fringes gladly I walk unadorned With gods and their creations With filth and disease Porcelina She waits for me there With seashell hissing lullabyes And whispers fathomed deep inside my own Hidden thoughts and alibis My secret thoughts come alive Without a care in this whole world Without a care in this life Without a care in this life It's what you take that makes it right And in my mind I'm everyone In my mind I'm everyone In my mind I'm everyone of you You make it right It's all alright You make it right Porcelina of the oceans blue Porcelina of the oceans blue
Another one for my project dedicated to The Smashing Pumpkins. Thanks to my amazing friend @blooma_blossom for being the perfect model. The song is "Beautiful". 🥀🥀🥀🥀🥀🥀🥀And I love you, as you love me So let the clouds roll by your face We'll let the world spin on to another place We'll climb the tallest tree above it all To look down on you and me and them And I'm sure you know me well As I'm sure you don't But you just can't tell Who you'll love and who you won't
The Smashing Pumpkins project. ✨One of my favourite songs of all the times, We Only Come Out At Night. ✨ We only come out at night We only come out at night The days are much too bright We only come out at night And once again You'll pretend to know me well My friends And once again I'll pretend to know the way Through the empty space Through the secret places of the heart ✨ @smashingpumpkins @williampcorgan @chamberdrums @jamesihaofficial @jjjschroeder
Another photo for my project dedicated to The Smashing Pumpkins. This one is X.Y.U. Featuring @sava_tati 🖤 She didn't wanna be, she didn't wanna know She couldn't run away 'cause she was crazy She gave it all away, she saw her baby break And in the air it hung that she was dull razors And I said, I wanna fill you up, I wanna break you, I wanna give you up From one another, another one should come to one another No one should come between us Still I was lonely, and she was by my side, my one and only Knows that she could never hide I couldn't feel her, and it was just a game 'Cause I was lonely and she was crazy Rat-tat-tat, ka boom boom, now take that, and just a bit of this 'Cause I'm a watcher, and I'm a doer of none Come to save you, 'cause you're all mine I hurt where I can't feel, I feel where I can't hurt I know where I can't know, I bleed for me and mine Ka-boom, a rat-tat-tat, and some good ole bliss 'Cause I'm a sister, and I'm a motherfuck I am made of shamrocks, I am made of stern stuff I am never enough, I am the forgotten child And I said I wanna fill you up, I wanna break you, I wanna give you up From one another, no one should ever come In between us, between us and our love Mary had a little lamb, her face was white as snow And everywhere that Mary went I was sure to go Now Mary's got a problem, and Mary's not a stupid girl Mary's got some deep shit, and Mary does not forget And this is how Mary's garden grows, and this is how Mary has her ghosts And into the eyes of the jackal I say ka-boom Now we begin descent, to where we've never been There is no going back, this wasn't meant to last This is a hell on earth, we are meant to serve And she will never learn She will never learn Bye bye, baby goodbye, bye, bye
Try, Try, Try is the song by the Smashing Pumpkins I have chosen for to this photo. My beloved friend and model @ilariapozzi__ played a good girlfriend to my boyfriend (I see a modelling career upcoming here!). One last thing, I hope that even @williampcorgan will like it too! To try to hold on To this heart A little bit closer Try to hold on To this love aloud Try to hold on For this heart's A little bit older Try to hold on To this love aloud And we are still alive Try to hold on And we have survived Try to hold on And no one should deny We tried to hold onto the pulse of the feedback current Into the flow of encrypted movement Slapback kills the ancient remnants That try to hold on
My new tribute photo to the Smashing Pumpkins, Thirty-Three. Featuring my girl @blooma_blossom 🌸 Speak to me in a language I can hear humour me before I have to go Deep in thought I forgive everyone As the cluttered streets greet me once again I know I can't be late supper's waiting on the table Tomorrow's just an excuse away So I pull my collar up and face the cold on my own The earth laughs beneath my heavy feet At the blasphemy in my old jangly walk Steeple guide me to my heart and home The sun is out and up and down again I know I'll make it, love can last forever Graceful swans of never topple to the earth And you can make it last, forever you You can make it last, forever you And for a moment I lose myself Wrapped up in the pleasures of the world I've journeyed here and there and back again But in the same old haunts I still find my friends Mysteries not ready to reveal Sympathies I'm ready to return I'll make the effort, love can last forever Graceful swans of never topple to the earth Tomorrow's just an excuse And you can make it last, forever you You can make it last, forever you
My endless project dedicated to The Smashing Pumpkins. Daphne Descends, with @blooma_blossom 🖤 With the sugar sickness You spy the kidnap kid Who kids you to oblivion It's the perfect hassle For the perfumed kiss He makes you miss him more than home You love him You love him more than this You love him and you cannot, you can't resist You love him You love him for yourself You love him and no one, no one else Past sidewalk ashes A last lovers arc You come apart to intertwine It was all so simple As you watched him move Across the darkness in your room You love him You love him for yourself You love him and no one, no one else And the winding vines The pretty boys dive And through the pinhole stars Into the shadow mind You will lose him then On some gentle dawn This boy is here and gone You love him You love him for yourself You love him and no one, no one else You love him You love him more than this You love him and you cannot, you can't resist You love him...
For my project dedicated to the @smashingpumpkins , this one is TRAVELS, from their newest album. My best friend @zombiegogo is the model in the photo but even the one I dedicate the idea to. And, as usual, thank you @williampcorgan for being a constant inspiration and a great human being. See love, see time See death, see life See tears, see bright See day from night That's where I belong That's where I belong That's where I belong but Far from here or else I'm gone
