Anders Petersen, Rome

Anders Petersen is one of the most influential European photographers since the publication of Café Lehmitz in the ’70s, with his intimate and direct images. In this volume are collected photos of his three trips to Rome in 1984, in 2005 (at the Rome Rome Photography – International Festival in Rome) and finally in 2012. These three personal diaries merge with one with the ” another and the tensions and energies of two winters and a summer blend, going to form a single story for thirty years that for much of the Swedish photographer’s career. And this is thanks to this so large part of time, in such a limited geographical context, that we can consider the photos of Rome in this book as a privileged observation of Petersen’s work, thus appreciating the consistency of an extremely cohesive working body, both in the approach than in the realization.

Marco Delogu, Suspended Light

Rome has been praised for centuries for the quality of its light. (…) Delogu does without this famous Roman light altogether, basing his two series on its utter absence. In thus doing, he captures a more underlying, unobvious but not less important light that is emblematic of Rome. The light of time itself: Rome is the city where, more than anywhere else in the world, history makes itself felt in all its diversity and duration, without closing itself on one period at the expense of the others, both melancholy and destructive, but also very suggestive.

Tim Davis, Quinto Quarto

Quinto Quarto is my new paradigm as an artist: it is more than a series of pieces of a unique work, and allowed me to play and provoke as I never knew how to do as a photographer. I am grateful for this opportunity. –Tim Davis

Alec Soth, La Belle Dame Sans Merci

Alec Soth joins the city of Rome in a visual and space-worn itinerary in space and time with John Keats’s poem, leaving the English poet to guide the photographer’s eye. Thus, the city is read according to a sensual, mythological and symbolic approach, in an emotional itinerary that crosses eroticism and myth, sensuality and poetry, symbolism and classicism, following the traces of a “dame sans merci” through hints, details, details that they resume life and meaning in the everyday urban context.

Guglielmo Castelli, Eparina

In his works, the word contributes to the image and the titles of the works – almost always literary quotes – provide the keys to the interpretation of the stories that animate its characters with tones of soft.

Motherland, Fotografia. Festival Internazionale di Roma. X Edizione

Motherland addresses the relationship between photography and territory in its deepest understanding, among authors and belonging to a place. The images that arise are born out of a growing need to look for their homeland: each responds in its own way, investigates its old or new lands, large or small, real or virtual, with personal visions, the result of the need to return or to get away. Motherland is an issue investigated and widespread in photography and the festival of Rome, from which the volume is born, researching today around the creation of ever new identities in a discovery and technology of the world, where, however, the strong need to investigate new territories; look for your own.
