"Susy", "Susy with a hat," "Susy in the pool," "Susy Nude" are some of the labels applied on the slides’s boxes taken by my father between the late 70's and early 2000's. Lorenzo Sestieri is a birdwatcher, photographer for passion and activist for the environment, he has always focused his production in the field of wildlife photography. These pictures, however, tell the story of another passion, the one he have for my mother, Susanna. Lorenzo met Susy in elementary school, in 1964. Lorenzo and Susy are still in love. "Susy Nuda" is a project conceived and realized by Valentina Sestieri with her father's photographs.
