I spent a year in Rome investigating how light is particular and unique to Rome. What I discovered is both obvious and banal; the "light" of a place is not only result of a geographic situation but is also intimately formed by the surrounding architecture and its urban setting. As Rome has so many periods of construction, it contains many different conditions of light: roman light; medieval light; renaissance light; baroque light; even fascist light. I took many photographs to fully appreciate this discovery, and it became more obvious after my time-lapse film studies, found elsewhere on this site. The figurative shadows are one of my favorite light conditions in Rome.
