We are loosing such wonderful people. David Bowie, Prince, Franca, Madam Carven, Richard Nicoll. Bill Cunningham. I pray to God they are keeping each other good company, and smiling down at us, just as she smiles at us here. Amen.
Affection and admiration are present in all of Sart’s images of Franca Sozzani. Every time she has appeared I felt a sense of delight. This shot is stunning! I hardly was aware of her before The Sartorialist, not daring to pick up Italian Vogue! It’s as warm and exuberantly creative as Franca! Words cannot capture a human being’s life. Her passing is a loss to people who didn’t know her, tremendously and profoundly more to those who did. The love being expressed for her is a testimony to the woman she was.
