I remember saving this editorial because I loved Natalia Semanova... Everything else, all the other loves, happened later. It's strange to look back and realise what a process it was - experiencing, learning, piling the information in neat layers inside my head, just in case.
The photos cocooned me in those memories, disturbed something... And of course, the fact that I've been listening to Mylene Farmer's Anamorphosee and soul-tearing Comme j'ai mal played a certain part, too.
Autumn often brings a dusty sensation of nostalgia... Can't help it.
