The book includes essays by art and photography scholars Silvia Malaguzzi, Mark Alice Durant and Academy Art Museum’s Senior Curator, Anke Van Wagenberg, delving into the seventeenthand eighteenth-century sources of Tavormina’s inspiration, her stance on art photography, and how the conventions of yesterday’s paintings can transform to make visually stunning photographic art for today.
