'Roma, Città di Mezzo' is the first book by the South Africa photographer Guy TILLIM is the first that is not about Africa - without people, (almost) without cars, outwardly unsentimentalized. The renowned photographer seeks a non-monumental Rome, a continuation of his previous project, 'Avenue Patrice Lumamba'. He seeks the middle city, the middle light (the rainiest winter in years is a privilega for him); he seeks an idea born out in his extended watching of neo realist cinema, which he re-elaborates in the field. Much lies in this strong tension of the quest for scale in the middle city, where Guy TILLIM is alone, free to think, to approach and to move away.
Like the earlier (out-of-print) photo volume 'Petros Village', this book was published in an one-sided accordian format.
