URBAN ITALY II | 2005-2011

Thought of as “SNAPSHOTS”, an ongoing series, relating in a way to a collection of short stories by Alain Robbe-Grillet. The brevity or absence of narrative, and the essentially descriptive character of the stories suggest a series of isolated and de-contextualized observations.

Characteristic of the genre, these snapshots record a tourist’s rather undisciplined attraction to fragments of the familiar and the exotic. They note a desire to assume a privileged view, a desire to witness an exquisite alignment or co-incidence.

Individual titles note the location of each subject. Street titles identify sites in Rome.
