Alec Soth, La Belle Dame Sans Merci


Alec Soth joins the city of Rome in a visual and space-worn itinerary in space and time with John Keats's poem, leaving the English poet to guide the photographer's eye. Thus, the city is read according to a sensual, mythological and symbolic approach, in an emotional itinerary that crosses eroticism and myth, sensuality and poetry, symbolism and classicism, following the traces of a "dame sans merci" through hints, details, details that they resume life and meaning in the everyday urban context.
