“To me, the subject of hair is very much like the keyboard on a piano with each octave representing a different genre of hair, for example theatre, film, salon and fashion. When the black and white keys are played they produce colour. In this series of images I wanted to play and discover yet another key, to see if I could recognise the tune.”
Taking advantage of his natural eye for street casting, Gianni spotted his muse Jazmine whilst walking past a café in Brick Lane in 2009. The spark was instant. She was a perfect fit for the ideas he planned to include in this book.
In Gianni's words “..my muse Jazmine was so versatile and open I began to see her in different ways, sometimes making the hair secondary to the image I had in my mind’s eye.”
