Dolce & Gabbana's Campaign Enlists War-time Photographer to Bring Visuals to Life
By SENATUS Magazine | 20 June 2016

Dolce & Gabbana has called in photojournalist Franco Pagetti to shoot its Fall/Winter 2016/2017 campaign in the historical center of Napoli, with the starring model Bianca Balti mixing with the town’s residents as well as passers-by for a series of fascinating portraits.

The cobbled streets of the Spaccanapoli neighbourhood and the city’s famous Via dei Tribunali, San Gregorio Armeno, piazza San Domenico Maggiore and via San Paolo provide the setting for the images, which see designer-clad models dancing around busking musicians and laughing with an elderly woman at the market.

The brief was certainly a change for Pagetti, whose previous photojournalism work has seen him cover conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kosovo and Libya.

A statement from designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana stated: "He’s one of the best in the business thanks to his bravery, his ingenuity and his skill. He is a tough operator. He will find the right shot for sure."
