INTERVIEW: EMMA BRESCHI
Photographer, model, and lover of red, Emma Breschi, talks to REEK about why she’s a bitch’s worst nightmare…
Tell us about your day to day?
Each day is something new and different. I’m lucky that I get to experience life like that! But when I’m not working you can guarantee I’ll be spending the day with my dog, Lebron.
What has been the most exciting thing to happen to you this month?
Well today I’m hungover and I’ve lost my voice… safe to say I must’ve had an epic night.
Tell us about some of the women who inspire you in your personal life and career?
I’m inspired by bitches that rage with anger and give everybody hell. I’m inspired by the mothers who care to be kind. I’m inspired by women, because they really are quite something.
What gender equality causes mean the most to you personally and why?
I mean most of us know the textbook meaning and how it should go, but gender equality is a topic of discussion that could go on forever and ever. So how can I put it simply? The way I see it, is that we should be able to raise our daughters more like sons and yet have the courage to raise our sons more like our daughters.
What signifies female strength to you?
Powering through your day with severe menstrual pains.
What are your 5 favourite smells and why?
Smoke from a wooden fire, Jasmine flower, the sea, eucalyptus oil and puppies… those smells rid me of anxiety.
Are you a witch or a bitch?
I’m a bitch’s and a witch’s’ worst nightmare.
