Milan fashion Week – sept 29. 2011 – 5.58 pm
Up until september 2011, I was not that interested in taking stylish men in pictures. For 2 stupid reasons :
1 – As I love women, it is easier for me to tell to a woman that she has glamour, natural charm
2 – Women have so many differents ways to be stylish that I didn’t feel the necessity to showcase men styles on Style and the City.
I was that stupid until I noticed Simone Marchetti. Stylish : definitely. Kind : absolutely. Handsome : it comes from the combinaison of his great sens of style and the kindness he shows to every photographer who ask to take him in picture.
As I love the art of humanist photography, all these years, I’ve been focusing on understanding how I could show how great people are through my pictures. That’s why it took me a year before I decided to talk to Simone. I needed to discover him naturally first. I could have stopped him many times to take his great styles in pictures, but that is not what life is about. Style is just the cloth of your personality and I needed to discover Simone’s personality first. And the best way to discover a person’s personality is to see how this person inter react socialy with others. And what I discovered was great. I never saw Simone refusing a picture, I always saw him smiling, cool with photographers and people. And because of his nice personality, Simone is always stopped by photographers every minutes, making my work of taking natural pictures of him harder. That’s why I wasn’t able to post picture of him sooner. I stumbled upon this one as I was preparing a new album from Milan Fashion Week for Style and the City iPhone iPad fashion app.
Simone, I thank you very much for the kindness you offer to every one. Enjoy your day, enjoy your vespa and … tell us how do you do to be always that stylish !
