At home when Coco Capitán closes her eyes she travels to the sea. “I like to picture myself snorkelling, looking at the fishes and coral while taking my time to swim around. I like to revisit memories of myself in the sea.”

Out of all the family pictures photographer Brad Elterman shares with the #GucciCommunity, the glamour photo of his mom, Frances. Brad also shares the words his mom used to say to him during difficult moments, “she really was a guiding light for me. She told me many times that at the end of the day everything will work out. Things will be better in the morning. I have always remembered those words and I find her message incredibly calming today.” Brad is passing his time at home in a secret canyon in Los Angeles where he takes photos of “glorious tiny yellow and green breasted canaries in the garden. They sing to me each morning… ‘good morning Brad’.” The images of his family are a message of creativity, love and well-being in this time.
