Last month I had the rare pleasure of spending a couple of hours with Mario Balotelli. The day was dedicated to a portrait session and a long in depth interview for the june Issue of GQ, entirely dedicated to the Brasil World Cup. Very glad the shoot made it to the cover, my very first one. Here the preview of the interview (in italian).
Many thanks to Massimilano Ferramondo for believing in my work. Also many thanks to Livia Corbò, Raffaella Rosati, Andrea Porro, Nicolò Russian, Maurizio Lucchese and Circus Studios in Milan.
