Anders PETERSEN became known in the 1960s with his photographic documentation of the 'Café Lehmitz' - a beer hall on the Reeperbahn in Hamburg. His incorruptible gaze, unconventional compositions and a radical, undisguised but not voyeuristic view of the people have made him famous. The photographer has been dealing with Rome since the mid-1980s and has returned there several times since then. The selection of photos in the photo book 'Rome' goes back to the present day and thus reflects the development of the city. With his unique, personal approach, Petersen captures the soul of Rome and its inhabitants." (publisher's note, © Walther Koenig, 2014)
"The photo book 'Rome' contains black-and-white illustrations from the years 1984, 2005 and 2012. It was printed on Munken Lynx paper and provided with a pigment print on matt cotton rag, 315 gr., (20 x 29 cm). The Special Ed. with print was limited to only 120 copies and has been sold out for a long time! The photo volume 'Rome' is rounded off with the text 'Rome's fever. The Temperature of Petersen's Code', written by co-editor and operator of Punctum Press, Marc Delogu.
