Over the summer of 2015 I photographed obsessively throughout Florence and, more specifically, the Boboli Gardens, using my YashiKa mat 124g. At the time I was not focused on what the work was about. I was simply exploring my love, the city of Florence and the great garden within her, in my favorite way--with my camera. But upon leaving Florence and carefully printing these images, I began to see that the work I had made was much more than an homage to my great love. I was once told that every photograph is a self portrait. Her body is is then my most honest self portrait- a view of how Florence has held me, and how I hold her. It is available for purchase here.
