Christopher Coppock from Ffotogallery Cardiff/Wales was one of the reviewers I met at FotoFest Houston. He invited me in 2002 for a residency in Cardiff and to photograph the city and it's buildings. In 2003 he gave me a great exhibition and a wonderful book "Ozymandias" with a great essay by A D Coleman.
Magnificence and Luminescence behind Gates
Genua is a city whose numerous narrow, centuries-old alleys with houses wind themselves alongside the hills. On summer days, the heat and humidity are captured here. Sometimes, there is a light breeze and I try to dry my wet forehead by turning my head to put together a clear thought.

TOWER: Idea Identity Icon
Perhaps there’s no simpler way to gauge a new building’s hold on its city’s collective imagination than by noting the frequency with which passersby feel compelled to pull out their cameras. If true, then Hearst Tower has few equals among the architectural paparazzi – jaw-dropping tourists and jaded townsfolk alike who jostle to capture its unique form with their lens. In their attempts to shoot its interior lobby, they can be charmingly brazen. But then, so is Hearst Tower.
In 2003 Richard Wendorf, the present director of The Boston Athenaeum, found my work at a London gallery in Museum Street, close to the British Museum. Soon after we started a conversation I visited the Athenaeum in spring 2004. From then on we planed a commission for the bicentienal in 2007.
In 2006 The Boston Athenaeum invited me for a commission to photograph my first real series of interiors at this beautiful old library, which becomes an exhibition and publication early 2008.
