Focus: The Death of Youth

Focus: The Death of Youth

Sometimes we think we have really super awesome jobs... then someone like Giovanni pops up and we don't feel so solid anymore. We had a chat to him about his project and got an insight into how he manages to get through each day...

With a trail of failed relationships behind him and a thirtieth birthday bearing down ominously, Giovanni Lipari decided it was time to become a womaniser. Soon realising that being smooth with women and good looking were womanising prerequisites that he didn’t fulfil, he needed a backup plan. His photo project, ‘The Death of Youth’ is Giovanni’s way of dealing with that failed attempt. A genius mode of catharsis involving Lipari photographing beautiful women in a style falling somewhere between art and erotica. We check in to see how he’s coping.

What did you do with your spare time before you started the Death of Youth project?

To be honest, I did not have much free time before starting the Death of Youth project. I was working a lot and did not have time or the resources to tackle a series of this magnitude. I did, however, take pictures for fun in my spare time, but the subject matter was very unfocused.

What does your standard week consist of these days? Do you do any work other than photography?

I never have a standard week. My life has been very hectic for the last year and I have spent the majority of my time traveling outside of the country. Also, I don’t really take many pictures anymore. I know this may seem surprising since I release new photos daily on my blog, but the truth is, I finished photographing this series about a year ago. I do not work professionally as a photographer, so I rarely have the opportunity to take photos. Additionally, I have been working on a feature length documentary for the last two years, which has taken up the majority of my spare time from my traditional work as a commercial director. I am currently entering the “post-production” phase of the documentary and I am certain most of my days will be spent working on this film. However, I do have some new ideas for future photo projects in the make for next year.
