The parallels between a city such as Rome, with its feminine and aged qualities, and that of a woman in her later years are undeniable. Both the city and the photographer possess a combination of world weariness and a certain amount of earned wisdom which proved to be irresistible. After seeing The Great Beauty, a film set in Rome which features a protagonist just turning sixty five, a return to the Eternal City became a necessity. The photographer, having also reached sixty five, embarked on a project with an aged Rome and its environs as the subject.
This is a new project and in the early stages of development.
