My name is Bebe and I am an art director and content creator. #myheritageandi is a photo series I conceived and made last year, taking inspiration from iconic portraits of famous people with their families, pets included. I used the original vintage photos (8 in total) as a starting point and I carefully chose the models, the costumes, and the locations that were fit for giving a contemporary adaptation of the portrait. The idea was to tell playful family heritage stories: all the characters are styled with witty humor in unusual and often irreverent postures, to show that a certain ‘Joie de Vivre’ brings together, despite time lapses and generational gaps.

The picture of famous Italian actress Lucrezia Lante Della Rovere with her dog, Arturo, was inspired by iconic old photos of Hollywood divas from the 50s portrayed with their pets. All photos were shot by talented photographer Filippo Avandero.
