About the Book
Marcus Brierley's Florence is not a book of beautiful views or scenic impressions.
On this visit, he was interested to capture the variety of life which fills the streets, the markets and the landmarks.
This is a contemporary Florence, thriving with its business specialities which include everything from art to icecream.
Images in this book were captured using a Canon 5d Mark II fitted with a 24 - 105 mm f/4 USM L lens.
Marcus Brierley is a specialist in reality and action photography. While he frequently has a "mind's eye" concept of an image he would like to make, he does not usually set up shots. Instead, he looks to explore sight lines, getting into place, lingering a little - and sometimes the right circumstances present themselves. Sometimes they don't, and then - sometimes there's something better he wasn't expecting.
