August Streets | 2017

Featured Photographs from the series August Streets; 10in x 10in;  Long walks down side streets, 120mm Film

This series of images began with an early morning walk through the empty streets of Milan in August. With many of the city's shops, restaurants, and galleries closed while residents partake in the traditional August holiday, tourist attractions became the most populated sites. Moving away from the Duomo along radiating streets, brought calmer avenues and vacant parks. Such vacancy is not limited to the city, but found in other tourist spots, dog-eared in the pages of so many travel books. Drawn to the side streets' quiet to find ivy covered side doors and fishing nets left to dry, these photos are a study of August Streets and the moments found off the beaten path.
