Anders Petersen is one of the most influential European photographers since the publication of Café Lehmitz in the '70s, with his intimate and direct images. In this volume are collected photos of his three trips to Rome in 1984, in 2005 (at the Rome Rome Photography - International Festival in Rome) and finally in 2012. These three personal diaries merge with one with the " another and the tensions and energies of two winters and a summer blend, going to form a single story for thirty years that for much of the Swedish photographer's career. And this is thanks to this so large part of time, in such a limited geographical context, that we can consider the photos of Rome in this book as a privileged observation of Petersen's work, thus appreciating the consistency of an extremely cohesive working body, both in the approach than in the realization.

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. Hardcover, 48 x 32 cm, 52 pages
For ten years, New York’s Alleged Gallery provided a breeding ground and played the role of willing accomplice to some of the most vibrant American art to come along in decades. By exhibiting the then emerging talents of Mark Gonzales, Chris Johanson, Rita Ackermann, Susan Cianciolo, Barry McGee, Margaret Kilgallen, Harmony Korine, Mike Mills, Ed Templeton, Thomas Campbell and Terry Richardson, much of Alleged’s impact was due to a complete and utter disregard for the status quo.
