We are all two people.
The person we are. And the person we want to be, know we can be, the highest version & vision we have of ourselves which is our very soul.
It's that second person I am interested in photographing.
You see, still to this day no one is completely sure about who Mona Lisa was. The current consensus is that she was Lisa Gherardini del Giocondo, the wife of a wealthy silk merchant in Florence. But even recently there has been some doubt thrown on this with the revelation of a second painting underneath her. Some now believe the image we see could be the lover of a member of the Medici family who ruled Florence at the time, while Lisa Gherardini lies beneath.
The one thing everyone seems to agree on is the fact that she was a woman without the high status of royalty, religious hierarchy or otherwise famous in her day. She was just like us. And somehow she became the most famous painting in the world.
My upcoming book, "You Are Mona Lisa" is the art and story of how I reveal the masterpiece that's inside every single one of us.
