About the Book

Standard Landscape, 10×8 in, 25×20 cm

An exhibition held at Forty Five Downstairs, Melbourne 5th - 16th February 2008 Each time I visit Italy I’m drawn to its visual contradictions. I find a country constantly battling ancient versus modern and a people who find paradoxical yet practical solutions to every day problems. In my visits over many years I’ve tried to capture images which explain this dichotomy. I hope this collection of photographs taken during these travels will relay to you the unusual, sometimes abstract and surreal aspects which fascinate me about this intriguing country.
