Photographer's Note

This is from Campo de Fiori ('Field of flowers'), one of the most famous outdoor market places in Rome. I was staying a few blocks away in a small bed & breakfast on my first visit to Rome in 1969, so I came here almost every day for the nearly three weeks I spent in the city.

I suppose this was one of my first attempts ever to take a photo inside a crowd. Technically this scan of an Agfacolor CT18 slide is of course of a very low quality, but I still like it because it represents the start of a style of photography that still gives me the greatest pleasure.

In the WS is another - unrelated - Roman crowd in the summer of 1969.
