Roads to Rome
by John Heseltine
Publisher's Description
John Heseltine, English travel photographer has spent two decades taking pictures the length and breadth of Italy, building up a comprehensive library of images for books and magazines.

When a commission is completed, or on one of his visits to do more personal work, he pores over maps of whatever area he is in, seeking out the remains of old Roman roads – some plain for all to see, some barely visible, some long buried. When he finds them, he makes the very personal and atmospheric black and white images that fill this book.

Heseltine’s love affair with Italy is in a time-honoured tradition. From the eighteenth century on, the British have admired the art and taste of the classical world above all others, and no aristocrat’s education was complete without taking the “Grand Tour”. Its highlight was Italy, with its rich store of antiquities and ancient monuments.
