Words and Images: 'EXPECT' by Lionel Gasparini

The thrill of anticipation is captured in Lionel’s sultry spread. “When I chose this word, I immediately thought of a girl spending a morning at home with all the possibilities that lie in the day ahead,” says Gasperini, who is based in Paris. How often we associate the city with sexy women, and here, we have a scene that epitomises that view: a girl in lingerie, in a room in Paris, waiting, hoping, longing. “There can be so much sensuality in the word ‘expect’,” Gasperini adds. “Who knows what she’s expecting?”
