Photographs by Tod Papageorge.

Upon invitation of Marco Delogu within the “Commissione di Roma 2010”, Todd Papageorge
runs himself into this project about Rome crossing the street photography and the tradition of
North-American photography. Delogu imagined it all as a series of “topographic” shots of
Rome which Papageorge would have filled with life. But as often happens in art, creativity of
Todd bypassed the initial idea to begin a sort of flanerie in Rome: a few details, a lot of gestures
but never spectacular, and a city that often is not immediately recognizable and never the
people watching in the camera.
