Yoshino and I live in Italy, my native country. We met three years ago in Japan, where she was born and grew up. In March 2020, in the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic, I suddenly felt the need to get to know her better and to be closer and to always keep her with me even if only in my memories. I then began to carefully observe her little gestures and expressions. To spontaneously photograph our intimacy and her discreet, silent, gently intense world. Not trying to depict her life as it is but as I feel it. As we feel it. And remember it.

In the process, through the camera we are learning to love and to look at each other in a new way despite any threat hanging over us.
