We interviewed Julia Fullerton-Batten, the first woman photographer behind the lens for the brand of red passion.

What does this mean for you, the word “muse”? 
The muse is someone who is a source of inspiration for creative work. Eva Green was definitely: in a week of intense work together to achieve the Campari 2015 calendar. I feel privileged to have had her as my muse. I was really excited to work with her. As a viewer I always liked her attitude on the set. I was very impressed with the patience she have shown for the realization of these photos. Working with Eva was a revelation for my work usually choose styles found on the streets, but Eva showed me a rich variety of expressions, gestures, personality that I had never met before. 

As you have represented the culture of the beverage Campari in 12 months?
In working with Eva and the team we have tried to associate the theme Mythology Mixology with everyday life, something that would unite the lovers of Campari with a menu of 12 classic drink from the long story but still loved, and drunk from the public. For this reason, the ones you see in the shots reflect the true nature of Campari, including contemporary, inspiration and imagination. Then the scarlet Campari returns in clothes and make-up of Eva, and then a location and coordination of lights which enter into this balance. The entire calendar I think that conveys the very idea of a fairytale event.

“Ducks” from the set that you can / want to reveal? 

Eva loved to entertain us with a lot of funny expressions. On one of these occasions, while we were shooting a scene on a counter, took the soda siphon and sprayed everywhere … .she definitely relaxed the set!
