VIA is a record of many journeys made around Italy between 1980 and 2005. Some of the images were published in my book, "Roads to Rome" but the series is much broader than this and seek to convey the mystery, the darkness and complexity of this country. In his introduction Colin Ford wrote “Heseltine’s beautiful black and white shadows of the distant and recent past powerfully summon up the great Roman roads of Italy ... In these pictures, ghosts really do come to life.”
