Nonna Maria

A few years ago I taught a course on Advanced Style at IED Roma. I had all my students go out on the street and photograph and interview older people and then share who they met with the rest of the class. Many of them had little contact with anyone outside their own peer groups and it was incredible to see how much they learned from this exercise. One of my favorite students, Eleonora Carrano, brought in her beautiful grandmother, Nonna Maria, to talk to the class about her work as a costume designer for the opera. All the students really enjoyed hearing Nonna Maria talk about her career and it gave them another perspective on what you can do with a degree in design. Last week I met up with Nonna Maria again and she was as vibrant and gorgeous as ever.

Red Lips in Roma

I love how confident the men and women I ask to photograph become in front of the camera. There is always a hint of Old Hollywood glamour in the way that they carry themselves. I remember looking through my grandmother's old photo albums and thinking everyone looked so elegant in the 1930s and 40s. I am often reminded of these photos when I'm out shooting on the street.

The Advanced Style Documentary is Coming to America

I'm excited to finally announce that Lina and I just signed a US distribution deal with Bond/360. After a successful run in the UK, It's finally time to share The Advanced Style Documentary with everyone in the US. We would love to bring the film to a theater near you, so please tell your local cinemas how much you want to see it. Bond/360 plans on releasing the film theatrically, digitally, and by DVD starting September 26th. We can't wait for everyone to see the ladies on the big screen! Thanks again for all your support.

Ari and Lina
