Lucia Giacani’s ”Russian” Icons: An artistic approach to Easter Ortodox Iconography


”Lucia Giacani is a woman who immortalizes women under every aspect. Feelings, ambitions and normality are captured through the lens behind which is a feminine eye that knows what to look for and how to express the essence of an entire universe. A woman who reflects another woman: this is the intimate reason of her job. Her look – naturally feminine and revolutionary – is the silent engine that works behind every shot and through all her flashes.’’
