Shot in Sicily
Shot in Sicily presents Michael Roberts’ complex view of Sicily – its people, traditions, and landscape – filtered through his photographic work for and beyond the fashion world. Spanning 20 years, the book traces Roberts’ changing vision of a sensual and ambiguous environment. Referencing Baron Wilhelm von Gloeden’s photography and evoking the films of Visconti and Bolognini, Roberts’ sense of Sicily moves beyond strict aesthetic categories. His camera captures the beauty of youth, crumbling temples, traditional Easter parades, and the theater of daily life to recreate the allure of Sicily, even for those who have not yet been there.
