Simona Flamigni aka Simon is an Italian photographer creating unusual portraits of unusual people. The majority of her subjects are famous singers, actors and actresses or sportsmen. Although her choice of subject should be enough to get people interested in the photos, Simon likes to create new realities. By staging settings and poses she intends to create little stories in which you wouldn't expect to find celebrities. To Simon those stories are small emotions, and reactions. Without much interest in simply beautiful images, she tries to decide on an emotion or a reaction with her subject. When shooting, confidence in - and from - her subject is the most powerful method to realize the images she captures. Her ultimate goal is to touch the beholder with a bit of those emotions, even if they don't recall reassuring or nice feelings.
