「The bond(繋がり)」




This is the story of friendship heartbreak, and the bond between two women that no longer exists.
I wanted to make visible that when a friendship ends, it can also be painful and there is a process that we need to go through, just like in a romantic ones.

All the images are postcards from the past, the memories of when they once were together.
Each change of look tells different stages of the story.

The first ones are more fresh, they are discovering each other and the one with the flowers that sneaks into the image is that someone who gets forever into your head.
The second ones are pure love, and they feel everything is perfect like that.
And the third ones are the most pastel and the melancholic. Time mixes between the past and the present.
They are separate, but can't forget each other, and the makeup on those images has lines that unite them between their faces.

The sea always inspires me a lot, and this time the trigger was my first vacation on the Costa Brava, Spain.
I spent many days in summer on the same beach at the location of this editorial.
The different types of relationships between women is one of the topics that I am passionate about and to which I always return.
