THE

PERFECT

EXPOSURE

To my parents for providing me with the opportunity of a lifetime And to those who inspired this book and don’t know it

Every photographer strives for the ‘perfect exposure’. The process of getting there is not always easy. However, each mistaken photo whether it’s blurry, crooked, or underexposed, provides a new perspective of what’s in front of the camera. As I’ve refined my photography skills on this trip, I’ve been able to develop a better understanding of cultural differences which led often to photos quite serendipitous. While shooting subjects specific to Italian culture, I discovered my personal exposure to Rome was just as important as the exposure of my photos.

The religious community is one of the most important components that keep Rome full of culture. The plethora of churches began to blur together the more we saw. But even though they all have similar arches and domes, it is hard resist the feeling of awe each time you walk into a new church. The detail and amount work put into restoration speak incredibly to the Roman’s devotion to their church, history and tradition.

From modern to traditional, each church offers a new chance to get a better shot than the last. The new and old churches contrast each other greatly but still hold a cohesive

dedication to Catholicism. As a designer, I try to capture a more unique perspective than the mounds of tourists flowing in and out of each church photographing.

Italian food markets are filled with wonderfully colorful, fresh seafood and produce — a photographers paradise. Unlike Americans, Italians don’t make one stop at a grocery store to get everything, they go to different markets for meats, seafood and produce to insure for the freshest of each kind.

“A tavola non si invecchia” An Italian saying translated, “You don’t age while seated for a meal.” It is not unusual to spend many hours eating an Italian meal. Especially when there’s good company and a bottle of wine. Eating, however is only half of the process when considering

the amount of love and effort put into cooking and preparing each meal. Learning to cook a traditional Italian meal and enjoying it with new friends has been the whipped cream on top of the gelato.

Handmade goods hold a special place in my heart as I pursue a degree in industrial design. Having the opportunity to witness the production process of many different products including ceramics, leather goods, hats and the printing press

22

was a humbling experience and something I had never seen before. Every piece in Rometti is hand made and painted by talented artists. My goal was to capture the delicacy and precision of the artists as they worked.

It is amazing how many family owned businesses have withstood the test of time. Schedoni has been producing leather goods for 130 years and hopes to continue passing the business down to the next generations. Simone Schedoni, enthusiastically explained every detail of the stations in his factory during the tour. His extensive explanations of the processes in the factory show that he understands his company and keeps a close relationship with the process.

Also a family owned business, Grevi Mode showed me that the people making the products can be just as interesting as the products themselves. Although the owner struggled to explain in English, her passion clearly showed through her smile as she showed off each hat with enthusiasm.
