“There are not more than five musical notes, yet

I got the idea of shooting this series one day
thinking about how many different types of women I get to meet during my travels
through Europe in the summer. In such small territory its no more than 1 or 2
hours on plane to jump from one country to another and I am constantly amused
with the architecture and different little things about each city. I think the
beauty of the human race comes from the diversity, where it gets colorful and
interesting. Sometimes fashion gets too stereotyped, flawless and far away from
those who it’s directed to, so it’s not easy to identify with a brand.
I get to meet a lot of people traveling and I
thought to make the sessions a little time with friends from all over while
assisting the skate contests in different cities. Some of them were models,
some not, just charming or interesting souls. It became really good and fun to
shoot and share stories with such different women, backgrounds and daily lives.
It gives you a better idea of us as gender and how we face our different
realities and necessities.
