About this artwork

Shot on Polaroid i-Type 600 / 5x8
Milano / 2009

“I had moved to Los Angeles, practically running away from my life in Milan. But for Fashion Week I flew back to Italy and I took a picture of this girl at a Dolce&Gabbana show. It quickly turned out that, as a coincidence, she was from LA. So we had both travelled here for a few days of shows, even though we were practically neighbours in LA. Things were completely out of balance and we both could tell. There was something challenging about the look in her eyes, as if she was saying, "Tony, what are we doing here?". Maybe it's just my interpretation, but I think in the picture you can feel the tension. I thought she was asking me, 'Tony, why aren't you with your family?' A few days later, home alone in my empty LA flat, I had a sobering conclusion: I couldn't escape reality. Specifically, I couldn't escape the unhealthy pull of the fashion industry by moving to the other side of the world. On the contrary. I missed Italy and my family. But the life in the US was a wonderful distraction - a new, selfish adventure, a race to the bottom.”
