This shot could only happen on a wall outside the Piazza Vittorio market. Looking at is it like scraping down the layers of culture that do exist here – even if they’re hidden. Of course I don’t mean the culture that everyone sees in the incredible museums here, that culture is obvious! But one look at the different languages of the signage on this wall will tell you that there is diversity, even if it’s just a glimmer, peaking out from under the sea of homogeneity which you can often find here. And under that – graffiti! I’ll post more next week, but there are some really incredible street art events happening here in Rome and I’m very excited to say that I’ve been asked to “officially” photograph them. I think maybe one of my attractions to street art and the street artists here in Rome is that even though they’re all Italian, by nature of what they’re doing, they’re not like everyone else. A bit on the outside, coloring outside the lines, if you will. They tend to be more liberal (shocking I know!) and interested in all sort of different arts, cultures, etc. Anyway, now I’m just rambling so I think I’ll stop, but more news to follow about those events next week. All of them are open to the public (and legal!), so if you are in Rome you can come and enjoy as well.
