Her eyes are basking in the sun, no one knows why she did the things she’s done.
Photographer Manuela Iodice chooses Michela as her melodramatic muse for a story inspired by Anthony and the Johnsons‘ music. Contemplative and wildly abstract, the pictures express an ideal of beauty in decay, but also suggest a process of cathartic transformation that strictly connects men to nature. Emotions run high and deep, while Michela appears eternal like a tree, soft like a broken leaf, precious like stolen flower. The dark glamour of the styling gives to the story a sleek and contemporary twist.
