As a non-photographer and above all a non-boudoir-photographer I immediately asked myself how a set with such a beauty like Mimì in a rich and decadent setting could be solved without falling into gender stereotypes.
I therefore preferred the color to black and white and I tried, in almost all the shots, to use only the ambient lights, that is something really new for me.
I wanted to keep the atmosphere very natural and not to feel the presence of the photographer, without daring light games or unnatural back lights.
It’s the story of a woman who plays to be sensual and fatal in the loneliness of her room, probably waiting for a man we will never see, told as a cinematic fashion story.
