LIVING LEGEND, BENEDETTA BARZINI

Journalist and teacher - Livorno and Milan, Italy

When you ask her which is the highest moment of her career she answers: “When I saw my children become parents”. Born in Porto Santo Stefano, Italy, and since five years moving between Livorno and Milan, she was named as one of the “100 Great Beauties of the World” by Harper’s Bazaar. A woman who took part in one of the most important artistic periods, which have connected her with figures as Salvador Dalì and Andy Warhol, being always far away from the research of the classical ideal of the beauty. “Boredom doesn’t exist. I feel the best when I am in front of the sea, listening to the rhythm of the waves. I am fine in silence, alone”. Benedetta Barzini is one of the most famous model of the 70s, a journalist, a feminist, a fashion history teacher in Milan and recently the testimonial of a campaign launched by the “Umberto Veronesi Foundation” with L’Oreal Paris and Coop to prevent the melanoma.

PHOTOGRAPHY FROM THE FOREST: SOPHIE MÖRNER

Photographer / Publisher / Editor / Curator — New York, USA

Capricious Magazine cover, issue #11, artwork by Beni Bischof

Sophie is a Swedish photographer living in New York since 1999: she runs two magazines (Capricious and RANDY) and a little publishing house.
She’s a horse trainer too and she’s starting to shape a huge ongoing project about the world around horses and her world around horses. It’s called “I am On the Other Side Now”.
Her photography “is about a female utopia where she disrobes from gender pressures, where she lets herself fall into an arcadia of pre-formative. Her presence is so quiet that it becomes loud, the sentiment and power are compressed making a melancholy space”.
