“A dream to live, work and prosper in L.A has been an ongoing theme in my life. Growing up in Australia’s suburbia of European and South American descent only further glamorized the possibilities for me. Always inspired by cinema, TV, music and the highly saturated aesthetics offered by the U.S, along with the promise of the American dream, has been something that has influenced my work for many years now.
I’m almost sure my idea of what it would be like to base myself in California far exceeds reality. This series is shot in Sydney, paying homage to the likes of Hollywood star Frank Sinatra. A sun-drenched scene, with palms framing the protagonist, reminiscent of a vintage postcard for Venice Beach, the bunny ears, a nod to Hugh Hefner and his mansion of Playboy bunnies. Like the Hollywood movies, I LOVE so much the model is just an actor in my visual story, a type of smoke and mirrors. This story was shot in L.A because I set the story there, but you know? It’s not L.A at all.”
