Dolce Via is New York-based photographer Charles H. Traub latest collection of photos taken during his summer visits to Italy in the early 1980s. Charles H. Traub's photobook brings an American aesthetic to the delights of the streets and byways of Italy. It is a joyful depiction of 80s Rome that bypasses the tourists, depicting instead a red blooded city with passion and summer in its heart
Seen through Traub's lens, Rome and the rest are cities alive to their own beauty, but with better things to think about – their people enjoying life in the now as the tourists stand like pallid statues, earnestly taking photos of the silent and gone.
