Tuscany: Wandering the Back Roads, Vol. 2
by Michael A. Smith
Publisher's Description
The land of Tuscany has nurtured and inspired artists for centuries. In Volume I by Paula Chamlee, and Volume II by Michael A Smith, the glorious tradition continues and is even enhanced in their deeply personal and beautiful photographs of one of the most alluring and romantic places in the world. In the spring of 1999 and 2000, and in the autumn of 2001, Michael A Smith and Paula Chamlee shipped their old Land Rover to Europe, after configuring it to accommodate their large-format camera equipment and camping gear. They then drove to Italy, where they travelled together, yet worked separately while exploring the landscape and the small towns and villages of Tuscany -- each recording their own visual responses to a land they had come to love. During their travels and adventures, Smith and Chamlee photographed from the quarries in the Carrara region in the north to the old Etruscan towns in the south, and from the Val di Chiana and Cortona in the east to the Island of Elba off the coast to the west. Their photographs, full of warmth and life, yet demanding in their complex visual elements, are the culmination of those three extensive trips.
