One balmy summer night, Giullia rides with my sisters and I back home for a sleepover. We braid each other’s hair and eat lots of sweets while we watch random shows on television and tell each other random stories. The next morning, I am inspired to shoot. So I dab white bohemian dots on her face and we head out to a little grassy corner at the end of our street. As I look at Giullia through my viewfinder, I see a fresh-faced, genuine girl — on the inside even more than she is outside, really. Twenty minutes in and little droplets of drizzle start to fall on our skins. It was time to head back home.
