Elisa was the one who introduced me to Alessandra, right after the Chanel show in March. We had a coffee and I immediately loved her warmth, her understated chic and her artist soul.
Elisa told me “and you should see her apartment, it’s so cool!”
Alessandra is a photographer and a poet. She’s amazingly talented, and today, she’s opening her doors for us…

A photo of myself on the rock of the Amalfi Coast, a place that is so dear to my heart. Where my family spent the summer for three generations. And a poem from Rob Montgomery

One of the photographs from my series “PRIMORDIALE” that was shown last year at the Contemporary Art Museum of Palermo. The show is now on view in Paris at Earth Gallery until the 24th of May.

The cover of the catalog of my show “A body split in two will never sleep” that I showed at Gallery Nuke in Paris in 2014. I like to play with polaroids, with the positive and negative.

One of my vintage typewriters. I love the sound and the physicality of it. Words become real in a different way.

My last publication “For Friends”. One year of travels for Louis Vuitton, 9 little books, crafted by the master Gerhard Steidl. We launched the book with a beautiful exhibition, produced and curated entirely by Steidl himself in January at the Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton, and in Milan at the Galleria Carla Sozzani in Corso Como 10.
