I couldn’t help but notice Rose sitting alone quietly and snacking just before the Giambattista Valli S/S 2012 show. I calmly approached her for a photograph. She nodded, placed her snack to the side, and gazed into the camera. No words spoken. There was something very intriguing, peaceful, yet powerful that struck me while I looked through the lens. It almost reminded me of a time when I photographed Valentina Ilardi Martin in London.
