images of Tuscany and Umbria

new perspectives from Paolo Evangelista

As winter finally strips away the last ragged leaves of autumn, we’re looking back on the season in the recent work from photographer Paolo Evangelista, who usually divides his time between France and Italy. Paolo is back at the family home in Italy, having first watched his native country convulsed by Covid earlier in the year. Now free to travel around the local area, Paolo said “I've had the chance to see how Tuscany and Umbria must have looked in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance and, when making the photos, I tried to imagine living centuries ago. Although there were very few foreign visitors, there were local people who, like me, had the opportunity to experience their cities and landscapes as never before. Despite some obvious signs of modernity, I almost felt that little has changed here since the times of the great artists: I could see the same things that Leonardo and Raffaello saw centuries ago. The towns and cities feel more comfortable, the people more friendly and welcoming now, because there’s simply more time to spare for one another. I also found a vital release in focusing more strongly than ever on photography outdoors, and finding these panoramic viewpoints allowed me precious time away from non-stop news channels, encouraging a wider perspective on the events of 2020”
