Italy: snapshops from a Roman Holiday

Love to see my meetup friends at the opening of my show Italy: Scenes from a Roman Holiday on display at Café Atlantique the month of September. I'm displaying 20 of my favorite shots from my June 2013 trip to 2 distinct areas of the country: the seaside along the Meditterean Sea and inland to Roma. Outside of a couple of scenic frames the images were made in homage to the street scene photo styles of Garry Winogrand and Robert Frank: images that reveal a reality but are open to interpretation. Offbeat, untraditional, and somehow familiar.  Printed in a variety of sizes between 20''-36'' on pearl, rag, metallic and canvas stock. Most of them were made with the Nikon Coolpix A which proved to be a great little camera for the street, cafe and beach.

Hope to see you there! I'll have out some munchies and please grab a wine or other drink at the cash bar and rub elbows with me and our friends. If you can't make it that night the show will be hanging for the month of September.

    Hey Jess, I was planning on coming to the event but had to attend a mentor meeting at a local high school I work with. I hope you do it again.

    Jesse: great show and a nice evening. I really enjoyed seeing your prints of Italy and your photographic sensibility. You proved that it is not the body or the lens, rather its the ability to observe, compose, and manage the light.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
