The pursuit of the impossible nothingness

Some of you know that I’ve been doing photos for book covers. I have already said how I’m loving it, but I can say it everyday and it’ll never be enough… it’s putting together two of the things I love: literature and photography. So this shoot with the absurdly handsome Ronaldo Griggio was for yet another book from Jean Genet: “Our Lady of the Flowers”. Genet’s books are such a mix of nasty physiologic details and deep amazing poetry. I have a love-hate relationship with his books hahaha… Anyway, for this shoot, what was needed was a kind of bad boy attitude, sometimes a bit flirty or vulnerable. Ronaldo did a really good job acting as directed.

Alguns de vocês sabem que eu tenho feito fotos para capas de livros. Eu já comentei algumas vezes o quanto estou amando fazer esses trabalhos, mas posso dizer milhares de vezes e não vai ser o suficiente… esse trabalho junta duas coisas que eu amo: literatura e fotografia. Então esse ensaio com o absurdamente lindo Ronaldo Griggio foi para mais um livro do Jean Genet. Os livros desse escritor francês são uma mistura de detalhes fisiológicos bem nojentos e poesia sensacional e profunda. Eu tenho um relacionamento de amor e ódio com os livros dele hahaha… bom, para esse ensaio, o que precisávamos era um tipo de atitude bad boy, às vezes um pouco vulnerável e sedutor. O Ronaldo mandou muito bem fazendo de acordo com o que foi pedido.

Yeah… sometimes I find it really hard to choose between color or black and white😛

    Great work, Anna!

    That b&w version of the second photo (02) is sooo much better than the already excellent colour version, the others I like more in their colour versions :-O 😉

  2. Here, just to the point, truely from who you obtained the idea for the photos, are you able to tell me his true name?
