WALKING INTO THE WOODS. Still searching for new lights and new ambients. For these shots I chose the silence of a pine forest, the last light of the day, the elegance of a long dress of the same color of the leaves of trees. And a simple, natural face. Natural as the light that I caught in these pictures, making it mine, forever. I love to work letting nature to inspire me. The shadows between trees, the glimpses of light between the leaves, these are the atmospheres I’m looking for: addictive , deep, sometimes mysterious.

KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. And just sometimes, my reality has mornings and daylight. It's filled with fallen leaves, purple mist, endless pink grass, tea, long walks, books, imaginary worlds and gentle love. The world is what you make of it.
