These large-scale fresco photography collages capture the stratified depths of arches, columns, bridges, and sculptures. They are created by superimposing multi-dimensional photographic images of detailed scenes of Rome, Paris, and the San Francisco Bay Area.  Each monument, cityscape or natural element remains untouched. Instead, the crumbling surfaces and sensual contours are fused into a rich tapestry in an innovation juxtaposition that inbues the collages with varying degrees of opacity and translucence.

The four sections of the warm-hued Roman collage include three-hundred and twenty unique images, primarily of crackling walls, interspersed with “fresco photographs” of layered images of monuments and statues.

The first print run of this twenty-six foot long collage has been acquired by the Rome Luxury Suites’ new boutique hotel, Babuino 35, located at the Spanish Steps.. These four compositions are mounted on aluminum, and inlaid in the wall of the lobby.
