Leica M6

timeless & classic
love it

Leica M6. Because it is the ultimate object of genius, because it has sentimental value and because it comes with me wherever I go.

Florence

David de Michelangelo,
gelato & pizza 

Florence. Because it is an open-air museum and a buzzing city at the same time and because you can see Michelangelo’s David, Botticelli’s Birth of Venus, and buildings covered in frescos then tuck into a generous gelato and a delicious pizza.

New York

My #1 travel
cheesecake & Brooklyn Bridge

New York. My #1 travel destination. Because I could watch Friends, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Sex in the City round the clock. And, above all, because there is nothing like a kiss on Brooklyn Bridge or the taste of Magnolia Cheesecake.

Lovemarks

This photo brings me comfort when I need it.

Black and White Photography. This photograph taken 40 years ago seems as alive as ever to me and moves me whenever I see it.
Everyone in our family has a copy of this shot, which reminds us of the importance and strength of our love and family bonds.
