Gallery Artist Dick Arentz New Book "Italy Through Another Lens"

Dick Arentz spent 35 years exposing film through the bellows of large format view cameras. He printed his images using the 19th century process of platinum and palladium printing, for which he is the recognized master. His books include Platinum & Palladium Printing, 1st and 2nd editions, as well as Nazraeli publications of The Grand Tour and The British Isles.

Now with Italy Through Another Lens he has moved to the 21st century, using the latest photographic technology to create platinum and palladium prints that meet the same exacting standards as those produced with the view camera. His impressions of Italy are indeed “Through Another Lens”. He presents a series of images of an Italy not generally seen by Italians or visitors, and which, framed by his unerring eye, radiate with the rich, haunting beauty of Italy. From the Italo-Albanese hill towns in Sicily and Calabria to the little known canals of Milano, the images in this monograph comprise an homage to Italy by an artist whose vision has been honed through the decades.
