Guest Room aims to spark collaborations. That’s why Alessia Glaviano is teaming up with Chiara Bardelli Nonino, Photo Editor at Vogue Italia and L’Uomo Vogue, in chosing the theme for this instalment. Chiara has decided to work with the quote from “Teaching my mother how to give birth” by Warsan Shire:
“I have my mother’s mouth and my father’s eyes; on my face they are still together. “
Submissions for this Guest Room should consider the sentence above, whether explicitly or abstractly. Alessia Glaviano will be working with the quote in mind when making her selection for her Guest Room.
