Great men don't tell you who you should become, they instead inspire you to realize, decide and BE who you want to be.
And that's not just important, but fundamental. Not to mention, also priceless.
I'm lucky enough to have a good handful of great men in my life that in very different ways, inspire me to be better and help me grow. First of all, my father, who is now and will always be the kind of men I aspire to be one day.
This is Eolo Perfido, my favorite photographer. And he's a great man.
(In case you're not familiar with his work, here's what you gotta do:
- SLAP YOURSELF IN THE FACE AS HARD AS YOU CAN.
- And then go to www.eoloperfido.com and be ready to be amazed )
I'm so very grateful to be able to learn from him, that I cannot even express it properly with words.
I'm so very lucky to have another great man in my life to inspire me.
This portrait was taken in a Hotel hallway in Milan, after a very tiring day.
He was kind enough to pose for me despite being tired to the bone.
Thank you Eolo, for allowing me to shoot this portrait and for much MUCH more.
