The three of us are constantly collaborating ideas and working together to build each other up. It all started with Mindy and myself in 2014 when she found me on a modeling site, from then on we built each other for the better and have become really good friends.
My name is Simone Carinetti, I’m a young Italian photographer. I’m studying graphic design and art direction at the Academy of Fine Arts of Milan. I choose this university course thanks to my passion for cinema, which introduced me to the world of graphic and web design.
The inspiration and style of the shoot are very much of a daydream, romantic mood. This editorial was shot at the beautiful river walk in San Antonio, Texas, with natural lighting of the sun bringing out my dark features as well as giving a dreamy, polished look to each photo.
I wanted to combine rich colors with trending patterns and garments to comment on the idea of beauty stereotypes. Blending elements of body image, a sense of play and fantastic adventures to show that the idea of beauty can extend beyond the usual categories.
