The year was 2018, I was in NYC taking a stroll around the streets of Brooklyn and spotted a thrift shop. On the floor there was an old underwear piece, it looked fragile, the fabric was almost see through due to how long ago it was made. It cost me $1, just a dolar. I bought it thinking about maybe using it in a photoshoot someday. For some reason that underwear was completely forgotten in one of my luggages, and then I´ve found it again in 2020 in the middle of the pandemic "chaos" while we were all trying to overdo not to overthink. So this one time I went to the studio I ended up bringing the piece with me to try on one of the models. After seeing the photo I took I realized it wasn't just a regular underwear shoot... It had something beyond ordinary, that image was poetic. Perhaps the whole context of beeing made back in 1972, the outworn fabric, and how it wouldn't fit as properly as a new one. I kept that photo and started bringing the underwear with me to every photoshoot I did, and and every time I felt a greater connection with a model I would ask if he could pose wearing it. I did not guide them through the shoots, I just asked them to do what they felt comfortable doing it to deliver. Because I forgot about the underwear for a while, I made myself to forget about those images while shooting. I knew that at one point it would feel right to stop shooting, analyze the visuals and make them public. Surprisingly, 72 models were photographed and UNDER72 was born.
