Item description for Michael Roberts: Shot in Sicily by Manolo Blahnik Amanda Harlech...
Michael Roberts' rich view of Sicily--its people, traditions, and landscape--permeates his photographic work far beyond his well-known work in the fashion world. Spanning two decades, Shot in Sicily traces Roberts' shifting vision of a sensual and ambiguous country. With an occasional nod to Baron Wilhelm von Gloeden's late nineteenth-century images of the Sicilian town of Taormina, and the films of Visconti and Bolognini, Roberts' sense of Sicily moves beyond conventional and touristic aesthetic categories. His camera captures the beauty of youth, crumbling temples, traditional Easter parades and the theater of daily life, and genuinely recreates the allure of Sicily. This monograph is designed by Roberts and features an epilogue/homage by designer Manolo Blahnik.
