The Red Chair (#sediarossa)
Tuesday, October 17, 2017
This summer I had the possibility to think about my work ... and I decided to use my studio, which is also my office and my refuge, to welcome some friends and why not some well known guys to sit on a chair, in front of a black backdrop.
I decided to paint the chair in red, first of all because RED is my favourite colour, and then for a lot of other reasons: because red is very visible in the pictures, because I love chili, and the chili is red; because I am in Italy and red is the third coluor of our flag, and because red is the color of Ferrari and Alfa Romeo, and I am passionated in sport cars since I was a child.
In a few days I become the "guy of the red chair". I shooted the first picture at the end of august, and now I have a picture to publish every day, because everybody wants to come sit on my chair ... and sometimes I take the chair with me to shoot some famous guys or very well known persons also out from the studio.
This is a "social" project because I use to publish a picture on my social profile (Facebook and Instagram) every day, but I hope it will became very well known to be published somewhere.
