Back in November, 2017, while his girlfriend was away, Ed “the 6 Million P Man” Worthington took himself on uno giro d’Italia, and the zine, ‘Uno Giro D’Italia,’ is the result.
Torino, Florence, Lucca, Genoa, Prado, Lazio, Rome, he went all over; landscapes, streetscapes, famous sculptures (Cellini’s Perseus with the Head of Medusa and Michelangelo’s Deposition), fountains, bridges, some industrial, it’s everything you’d expect from a trip to Italy, and all in stunning medium format squares.
The photographs are well printed, if maybe a bit dark, and the zine is well made, though the pages stick together a bit, on my copy, anyway, and the zine makes me want to visit, and shoot, Italy one day…
Overall, I’d give it 3.5 stars.
Copies of the zine are available on Etsy at time of writing, but if you miss out, the 6 Million P Man is all over Twitter, and has a website too. His ongoing daily posts from various mediums there inspired my FPOTD (Film Photo of the Day) series.* Thanks, Ed!
