Eighties Italy

Charles H Traub, head of the photography department at SVA in New York, spent the eighties documenting Italian street style in Rome, Naples and Florence. It was time well spent to judge by the images in his book ‘La Dolce Vita : Vibrant, Colorful Photos of Italy in the 1980’s’. There’s a wry humor at work in many of the pictures which include both candied shots and simple portraits.
