About the Book
Rome. The Eternal City. The City of emperors, popes, architects, artists and gladiators. Majestic churches tucked around hidden corners. Ornamented buildings that surround ancient piazzas. Grand boulevards and meandering cobblestone streets that have felt the feet of millions. Layers of time reveal crumbling, weather-streaked and season-stained stone.
Rome is a kaleidoscopic collection of contrasts: monumental and intimate, ostentatious and austere, quiet and frenetic. Old, older and new stand side-by-side-by-side.
There is always something in the air: sunlight streaming, the scent of coffee and exhaust, jovial chatter, traffic, church bells—clamoring, yet harmonious.
Paired with precise geographical coordinates, each photo captures an
enduring sense of place that is simultaneously specific and ephemeral.
