ROAM

 “Italy has changed but Rome is Rome”

                                                                 Robert De Niro

 
 

‘ROAM’ is an ongoing project that highlights The Eternal City, Rome. Even though Rome now shares its center-of-Italy role with Milan, Rome still is the place that everybody from Italy comes in and settles down thus creating a cultural and social diaspora. Through years of changes both politically and socially, Rome manages to create its unique blend of hospitality and metropolis aesthetics to its deepest core.  Aside from capturing its ever-so popular rustic and antiquity of The Eternal City, the focal point of this project is to bestir and accentuate such ardor that only Rome can possess; bustling, affectionate and yet quite esoteric. My role as a photographer was to simply ‘roam’ around the city and capture the energy of the city that never fails to entice me.
