Man with Croissants, Textures of Italy,
Florence, Italy, 2005
The photographs in this portfolio were taken during a 2005 month-long photography trip to Italy.
The stops included Venice, Lake Como, Cinque Terre, Florence, Siena, Montalcino and Rome.
I chose to start with this photo, taken crossing the Ponte Vecchio Bridge in Florence, because it represents to me a lot of what Italy is about in a very tight composition; quality, texture and simplicity.
This is a photograph about textures, with the wet pockmarked cobblestones, the finely tailored wool suit, and the freshly baked croissants in the clear plastic bag, held by the aged hand.
