Pop Star CARA QUICI and acclaimed celebrity fashion photographer GIAN ANDREA DI STEFANO have banded forces in an original series of photographs portraying the authentic identity of the Pop Star and her iconic inspirations. The collaboration of photography pays a nostalgic tribute to QUICI’s influentials; Goddess of Punk Rock, BLONDIE’S leading lady, DEBBIE HARRY and the Queen of Pop, MADONNA.
GIAN ANDREA first met CARA QUICI working together on an advertisement campaign. The photographer saw QUICI’s professionalism and star quality instantly. He felt he wanted to work with her for the immediate connection they had on set.
“There is something so artistic about Cara, something naïf and complex at the same time. Her genuine enthusiasm, combined with her raw sexiness and her fun side, gives her such a unique charm … I needed to shoot her to bring it out… The photos really represent who she is, she wasn't only taking my directions well, but making them hers by rolling with them.” - GIAN ANDREA DI STEFANO
“This was a genuine collaboration of two artists, merging each of our crafts in order to portray a vision of how I see myself while reflecting on the memories that have built the foundation for the music I’ve recently completed.” - CARA QUICI
