After more than two years of MAX CASTING and 122 (!) models photographed and interviewed the time has come also for me to answer to the questionnaire which was submitted to them:
The main feature of my character: I am a gemini, and as such I am arguably duplicated. I feel lazy/hyperactive. Educated/ignorant. Funny/asshole. Boring/very fun.
A quality I desire in a man: intelligence and a sense of humour.
A quality I desire in a woman: intelligence and a sense of humour.
What I appreciate the most from my friends: that they are there.
My main defect: I am a dickhead.
My favourite occupation: I love sleeping after making a great effort, and falling asleep slowly while reading a book or watching a movie.
My dream of happiness: “three movies a day, three books a week, three albums of great music will make my happiness until I die” Truffaut.
What would it be, for me, the greatest misfortune: to not reach the end of this questionnaire crashing before would be already bad luck, but if you read this post to the end it means it didn’t happen.
What would you like to be: I would like to be a photographer that from a small town in the province he went to the metropolis following a dream that became reality… ops! (“today is a gift, that’s why it is called the present” Vinicio Capossela).
The country where I’d like to live in: the one I chose.
My favourite colour: I like the blu/black of the IWC face.
My favourite flower: for aesthetics the calla lily, for the perfume the lilium (that has to be white in order to perfume).
My favourite authors: and how am I going to choose?!? Impossible! Then I’ll go on those for formation: John Steinbeck (all the books!) for the “photographic” realism; Jean-Paul Sartre (nausea, the wall!) for the existential philosophical introspective, Italo Calvino (the cloven viscount!) for the magic.
My favourite musicians: oh come on! I just had to make a considerable effort with the writers, to confine myself to only three, and now even the music! How do I do it?!?! It’s impossible!!! We go again with those for formation: Genesis, Pink Floyd, Fabrizio De Andrè.
My favourite painters: again!!! Who is the sadist who made this survey?!?!? A painter I have always liked is Cagnaccio of St. Peter, especially for a painting that I am crazy about “after the orgy”, where for a time (when for a photograph that is nice we say it looks like a painting) you may as well say that the painting is so beautiful it looks like a photograph. I would also add Caravaggio, Andrea Pazienza, Diane Arbus (I can add a photographer, can’t I?!? And I want to add Diane Arbus…).
My heroes: “blessed are the countries that do not need heroes: Bertolt Brecht. I take a step forward: I have no heroes.
What I detest the most: ignorance, because contrary to other unpleasantness you may if you wish, eliminate it.
The historical figures I despise the most: how many laughs to the (so many!) models that have answered HITLER. But why?!? It is such a generic and useless answer that it is not an answer! Not one that answered, I don’t know.. POL POT! Now is Pol Pot less bloodthirsty than Hitler or I know nothing of history?!? I will try and give some balance and I will answer with all the breath in my body: POL POT!!!
The gift from nature that I wish I had: what I would like to have I already possess!
How I would like to die: “the most unjust thing about life is how it ends. What I mean is: life is hard and it takes most of our time… what do you obtain in the end? Death. What does it mean! What is death? Some kind of bonus because you lived? I believe that the life cycle should be completely reversed. We should start by dying, so we are left without the thought. Then, we are in a hospice from where we get kicked out for being too young. They give you a bonus and you then start working for forty years until you are young enough to enjoy retirement. Following that are parties, alcohol, weed and high school. Finally primary school starts, you become a child, you play and you have no responsabilities, you become a baby, you go back in your mother’s womb, you spend nine months floating and you end it all with a nice orgasm!” Woody Allen.
Current state of mind: I am happy! I’m almost done with this questionnaire for which I got really stuck in!
The faults that I can bear: the big ones. The bigger they are the more indulgent I am. If someone steals there must be a deep reason for stealing. And if he kills there will be an even bigger reason. But what is the reason for littering?
My motto: even the clock that has stopped will mark the exact hour twice a day.
