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 technology. His impressions of Italy are indeed, “Though a Different 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 homage to Italy by an artist whose vision has been honed through the decades.
