Project Information

Assigned by Geo magazine in France to produce an essay on the boot of Italy, the mezzogiorno as it is referred to, I spent three weeks seeking out pictures that would depict as best possible a snippet of life and scenes of this magnificent yet somewhat forgotten part of Italy. Tourism has been concentrated on the picture postcard northern regions and since little governmental money has invested in most everywhere below Naples and the Amalfi coast, disrepair and unemployment has eroded the region.
