I had the wonderful opportunity last year to travel across Europe to document 3 of the 9 festivals published in this year’s New York Times feature; ‘Celebrate 9 European Festivals worth travelling for’.
Without doubt one of the most interesting photo assignments I’ve shot while in Italy – the hidden treasures to discover in Italy’s exsquisite libraries.
