From an ongoing project documenting the life and times of Angelo Garro, a modern renaissance man .
Angelo Garro is an artisian blacksmith by trade, cook by birthright and omnivore by compulsion– omnivore of life, that is. There’s no topic he can’t discuss, nothing he can’t make with his hands, no part of life he isn’t curious about. I love his workspace – its odd combinations: gamebirds and wrought iron, wine cellar and warehouse, fire and sky. Actually, to Angelo those combinations aren’t odd. They’re part of an all-welcoming, all embracing determination to live life hands on.
Alessandra Mortola and I collaborate frequently to create studies of the beauty in offbeat or decaying objects.
I found these burnt scraps on the beach. In the sunlight they sparkled. I have always been fascinated with garbage, used and old things. They all have a story. These pieces left from a bonfire could have been someone's memories. Brainstorming with Alessandra, we decided to shoot them on an old film holder plate to illustrate capturing this moment in time.
The story of Plant Life was conceived by Claudia Bruno and Courtney Saunders for their magazine BARE Journal, a european publication which explores the bare aesthetic. Plant life explores fashion, still life, and interiors to weave together a story that celebrates the raw, foraged and sublime nature of flora and fauna.
Louesa Roebuck doesn’t want to be called a florist. She says she’s more of a floral forager, someone who wants to find unique beauty in nature, not the standard 18” of so much in the flower market. So, that’s what we tried to bring out in this article for creative director Claudia Bruno’s Bare Journal while connecting her vision of plants with home and fashion. The images are a celebration of how life surrounds how we live.
