Artist Statement

Experiments with an old Olympus Pen (or Half-Frame) camera. This is a series of photographs from Florence, Italy. I don't think it's an accident that most of these pictures are of the street as one can't live in Florence for long without coming to experience the way people walk--and particularly drive--as less than polite. One must be ever-vigilant to avoid being run over by the endless streams of motorini being driven by crazed fourteen year olds!
