A session with Mr. Pignatelli is one of the few photo sessions that I remember pretty well. I was quite impressed with his way of shooting because it was so fast!
He came to the TV studio where I was shooting one of my TV program and did the photo during my taping break. He had specific idea as to what he wanted me to do. He told me he wanted to do something pretty weird and far out, ”reversed suicide” or something.
He did a couple of shots at my waiting room and then we went out of the building and did another couple of shots in front of the studio warehouse and that´s it!
The whole thing was over within twenty minutes or something! In a way, it was very similar to the way I shoot film and it fits my internal rhythm.
