The black and white photographs featured in this exhibition were first shown in the Graphics Department of the Princeton University Library and some were bought by the Museum of Modern Art, NYC. The portraits and landscapes of Italian life during that year, primarily of Rome but also of the South and Sicily, give us a glimpse into the heart of a country at the cusp of profound industrial and political change.
With two m-3 Leicas, several lenses and a light meter, Wurmfeld spent 1964 living in Trastevere exploring the city and the surrounding countryside. A strong graphic sense and an eye for the revealing detail are distinguishing characteristics of this body of work.
