Preliminary Portfolio

Basic images I’ve shot on film and digitally (as indicated).

TRACES OF ANTIQUITY

CAPITOLINE PiazzaThe view up to the top of Capitoline Hill in Rome, looking into the Piazza del Campidoglio (designed by Michelangelo, among others); an equestrian statue of Emperor Marcus Aurelius can be seen in front of the Palazzo Senatorio. On the other side of that building is the Roman Forum.

ROME Cap BaluStats copyTwo of the pagan statues that line the roofs of the buildings that frame the Piazza del Campidoglio.

 

ROME Forum Tmpl1 copyColumns in the Roman Forum remaining from the 2,000 year old temple of Antoninus & Faustina; on the extreme right can be seen the church that was built inside to”reclaim” the building from its “pagan” past; the Church of San Lorenzo in Miranda.

 

Swiss Guards

VATICAN Pinecone

The “Pigna”; the 15 foot bronze sculpture of a pinecone that sat in front of the Old St. Peter’s Bascilica for 1,000 years before the St. Peter’s that we’re all familiar with was built. This was what a thousand years of Christian pilgrims and top dogs saw as they entered the “capital” of Christianity for a milennium. It’s now in the Vatican musuems courtyard.

 

Sfera con Augustus

Also in the Vatican museums courtyard are these two sculptures: one, the head of a colossal statue of Augustus, carved 2,000 years ago, the other, “Sfera con sfera”, decidedly 20th century.
