The most complete monograph ever published and the first after the death of the great Venetian photographer.
An incomparable photographer with images from all over the world, Roiter started to take photographs in 1947. For twenty-five years, he preferred to use black and white, with an uncompromising formal and compositional rigor and a technique rooted in contrast, a technique he would continue to seek even in his later work with color.
The catalog celebrates Fulvio Roiter with essays by Italo Zannier and Denis Curti and an anthology of writings on his art. The photographs are organized into thematic sections: "Venice in Black and White," "The Tree," "Venice in Color," "Italy in Black and White," "Around the World" and "A Man Without Desires."
