The most photographed model by Marian Vivanco for the book “UOMINI”, talks about London, the male body, the female body, movies, games and nudity.
When and where were you born?
I was born in Exeter, Devon, UK.
Where do you live?
I just moved to Columbia Road, in London, every Sunday the most amazing flower market takes over the street. It’s incredibly charming.
What's your favourite activity in London?
It has 2 be strolling down Brick Lane on market day, you can't get that vibe anywhere else in the city.
Which part is the most important one in a man's body?
His mind, once one has mastery of this, you can do anything.
In a woman's body?
It’s the same for a woman, a beautiful mind is also incredibly sexy.
What kind of a relation do you have with nudity?
We were born naked. The best things happen to us in life when we're naked. Nudity shouldn't be an issue for anyone. Its sad that for some it is.
What are your worst qualities?
I'm too trusting and I fall in love too quickly.......and never play cards with me. Especially strip poker.... I’ll cheat.....
What would you like to do after modelling?
After modelling? What... what is there after modelling........mwahahahah. I'm going to have my own theatre company.
Which is your favourite tv program?
Anything about food.
I have failed to be sucked into any TV series.
Ok, do you play games like… I don’t know ASSASIN'S CREED?
O no, life is a game. I play it very well.
That’s sure. What do you think about online dating?
Great way to meet people who are socially inept.
I totally disagree with you, anyway: the most important film of your
“Pi” (the mathematical symbol) by Darren Aronofsky. Its not just a film, its cinema. You need to watch this film.
I will, I really enjoyed “Requiem for a dream”. For which activities you prefer facebook? and for which ones you prefer twitter?
Facebook has become so socially ingrained in our culture I don't think I could function without it. Twitter however is for idiots. You have been told. Above all of this though, a letter still trumps everything else as the most meaningful way of communicating.
How were those pictures for UOMINI shot with Mariano Vivanco?
I am yet to see the final shot choice. I know making them was emotional.
