Giannie Couji styled two stories for the latest edition of Velour Magazine with the photographer Marco Piana.
Giannie said of the shoot: “‘The planes’ graveyard’ as I called it was the most surreal location, especially coming from cold NY and then arriving in to boiling hot Tucson was a thermal shock. We were basically boiling under the sun.” The second location was a movie set and museum called Gammons Gulch, the place is run by a lovely couple, Jay and Joanne Gammons. It felt like stepping back in time, in a old western town, just waiting for the cow boys and Indians to come down the hills, at one point the atmosphere became quite dusty and we have a bit of stormy weather, which made the set very dramatic.
