During the Milan years (1997-2001) commissions included editorial work for the newly launched Milano Free magazine (Media UP). This was a monthly city guide based on local goings on in terms of art and culture.  Here a few of the covers photographed for the magazine, more will be added as I unpack my Milano boxes (1997-2001). I had the privilege of living about 100m away from Santa Maria delle Grazie, a Dominican monastery with the Cenacolo Vinciano (Leonardo’s Last Supper) on the refectory wall, during the time of its last restoration in preparation for the 2000 Jubilee. These visits later led to the “Sunday afternoon” work, a 3 x 0,4 montage work.

The editorial work for Milano Free included interviews and reportage work on people and city life. It was in fact an amazing opportunity to meander and wander within the city centre. More info will be added as I dig into the old boxes.
