“This is a photo-story that I called ‘Shamadhi at Matt’s’. I’ve been taken photos of Shamadhi for more than a year when she wasn’t a model for real. I’ve always loved her expressions but now that we became friends (even though she is much younger) I think our photographs are more intimate and sincere, she doesn’t even have to pose and that makes the outcome more melancholy. I’ve seen Shamadhi go through many stages, but never so happy as in their relationship with Matt. So we decided to portray in Matt’s apartment just for the record. Love the atmosphere there and been part of the up growth of my not so ‘little girl’.”
