Summary of project:

When I was in Rome for a few day in October, 2011 I met with Marco Delongu director of FOTOGRAFIA Festival Internazionale di Roma. Marco had just produced Alec Soth’s commissioned book project La Belle Dame Sans Merciwhich follows commissioned series on Rome by Guy Tillim, Anders Petersen, Martin Parr and Tod Papageorge. Alec’s oversized book was a mastery of design and production. I decided in my week in Rome to make some pictures and a bookwork that was at the other end of the scale, simple and unadorned.”
