ENTRANCES AND ALLEYWAYS: AN ITALIAN PHOTOGRAPHIC JOURNEY
Italy captured me from the moment I set foot on the land. I experienced a lightening of heart, a connection to earth. My first interactions with strangers involved singing and dancing, drinking espresso on a street corner, sharing a family song, that my father-in-law would sing at dinner, joined by a 92 year old winemaker--no longer a stranger. Many times, I found myself walking down alleyways, wondering what was behind the ancient wood doors or around the corner or down the stairs. Or I found myself looking out from ancient overlooks imagining history. The photographs below reflect the experience, wonder and transformation I felt.
