Finding herself perched upon a pink motor scooter in sunny Italy just goes to show that every economic downturn has its upside. Facing almost a year of unemployment with no prospects in sight, Gomez headed overseas to teach English. "Italy" is a compilation of photographs and stories of the people and landscapes that fascinated her as she traveled throughout its northern regions at the peak of the grape and olive harvesting season. You'll feel like you’re right there beside her as she picks Sciaccatra grapes from terraced vineyards cascading to the Ligurian Sea, hikes the Alps with a 73-year-old, and shops in the colorful open air market. She even finds an old flame exactly where she left him 30 years ago in this unique celebration of the timeless beauty of Italian life.
