Portrait with Black Background, Cortona
From the Cortona collection
I was in Cortona, a town in Tuscany, to do a week-long workshop. It’s not a large town, so the people have not been inundated with photographers and they didn’t react to me that much.
The pace was slow, the shopkeepers patient, the buildings old enough to be interesting, the children reasonable. All in all, a gentle and leisurely time.
