«We are not only bound by a long friendship with Madonna», say Luigi & Iango. «Many values bind us to this great artist. The great discipline. Respect for creative work, for diversity, love for people. And again: the cult of challenge, the duty of preparation, the requirement of study and deepening. Madonna taught us to always go further, always one step further, always one step higher. And it doesn’t matter if you risk falling: what should interest you is moving forward, creating a better world, trying to do something different, more beautiful, more significant. This portfolio is a tribute to her, to her career, to her struggles. But it is also a reflection on the role of fine art photography in contemporary culture. In a world dominated by fast and liquid images, we find it’s time to go back to work on excellence, quality and meaning. Excellence and quality concern study, time, talent and resources invested. The meaning concerns the need to always introduce value and progress into every artistic expression. Sense, beauty, progress: these are, in summary, the values that interest us and on which our work is concentrated today».
