Hans Kristian Riise

Photographer Hans Kristian Riise stumbles upon double the fun in this sun-soaked photo from the series Italian Summer that he shot a few years back while in Naples. These teens spotted the Oslo-based photographer snapping pics up and down the bay along Via Francesco Caracciolo, and immediately started to play along, giving Riise and his camera something to work with; “it became this improvised portrait shoot—I responded to their energy,” he says. With their English as limited as Riise’s Italian, this moment was all about the visual—a playful and youthful capture of “a city where people really know how to live and love with passion.”
