Rome (imperfect)

@ Petersen, Anders



Anders Petersen likes to travel, and he likes cities, which is obvious simply by looking at his bibliography.

With Rome, in his trademark style of photography and narration, Petersen displays the city not through the old buildings and busy daily life, but though portraits of passerbys, market stalls, various animals, and apartment interiors, beds, bodies, and skin...

The images in this book are from 3 trips the artist made to Rome in 1984, 2005 and 2012.
A beautiful series, a very simple layout that works really well, a really beautiful book, a must-have for the Petersen fans.

This book is SOLD OUT by the publisher.

Il s'agit essentiellement de rencontres ramassées en elles-mêmes, qui ne contiennent aucune information, ne désignent aucun contexte. Le caractère poétique, si on veut risquer ce...

  • .Sold out. Publisher's presentation: "We show the images that Anders Petersen highlighted and marked on the contact proof sheets, of the period, with signs, signals and colours. They have lost that original intention of prominance and of status, their Morse code, their meaning, but they have gained the gesture. The footprint. The pride of ingenuity. Their...

  • From the publisher :"The vision of Ciociaria that Douglas Stockdale presents in this book remains way further from grandiose than picturesque, in line with the desire to reject stereotypes of landscape and cultural anthropology. Observing the region through a careful eye of a ‘flaneur’ photographer, almost an ideal recreation of what once were the...
