A special collaboration

A special collaboration

What makes London a “talking” living city concerns its multicultural and cosmopolitan background. In this city multiculturalism has become a habit. There are swarms of people from all around the world living and working here. London is certainly the city you have to pass through once in your life.

Assunta is a long-standing friend of mine. We have been knowing each other for decades, since when we were two dreamy teens from South of Italy (Apulia)…
Me and Assunta have been in touch for years, as long as I left Italy to London, where I settled and started working on my personal project Natureat, while she became a photographer.

Assunta is currently living in Bari, in Southern Italy, where she works with her camera, taking pictures and she is an amazing  wedding photographer.

Few months ago, when Assunta was passing through London, we spent some time together like the old good times. Although time passes, Assunta didn’t change much.

Some feelings and emotions just didn’t vanish over time: in fact, my dear friend Assunta looks like the same I met years ago; a genuine and dreamy person who never ceased to rejoice and being amazed of little things.

We made up for the lost years, drinking some wine together, and talking about our lives for hours. I felt like I was at home and I appreciated her curiosity (and satisfaction) when she tried (and appreciated) my vegan food.

She told me about her future plans and about the hard work concerning the wedding photography, which she deals with. I really appreciate her alternative style and the passion she puts in all her works. It makes everything magical and wonderful.

Before she left, we stopped at a coffee shop in Brick Lane: a very vintage place, which has so influenced our adolescence.

Suddenly, we had an idea… While we were chatting, unwilling to let our friendship again at the mercy of the distance, we took a decision. Me and Assunta are now working together for a common idea, a co-working between Food & Photography, that you will soon be able to follow on our blog.

Through the memories of the past and expectations about the future, we are the very same that we used to be in the past, but maybe we are more sensible and with great expectations to turn our desires into reality.
