About this artwork

Shot on Polaroid i-Type 600 / 5x8
Milano / 1999

"I took this picture back in 1999 - a time when Donatella Versace only rarely smiled. It was one of my very first Polaroids and is still one of my dearests. It was a year after Donatella re-emerged in the fashion world to take up her brother's legacy. Gianni Versace had been shot dead in Miami in 1997, by a serial killer. You have to imagine Donatella's situation, she was devastated and under immense pressure. The company, with thousands of employees, was depending on her and the public would not let her breathe. As the new lead designer at Versace, she would be following in the footsteps of a genius. But she dared - her strength is simply impressive. And so this picture also stands for my decision to start a new life and leave backstage fashion photography. Donatella Versace is a role model to me and her courage inspired me in my darkest hours. She is a fighter, a lioness and you can sense it from this profile."
