Capturing the Beauty of the Mundane in Southern Italy

Everyday Gems.

Pigi Portolano documents daily life in Southern Italy. From his home base in Puglia, the Italian photographer wanders the streets of Bari framing the beauty of the mundane. Portolano’s photography captures a dusty kind of elegance in a part of Italy that is free of the guilty obligation to see world-famous sights. There is a joy in small things here, and while these photographs may have a whiff of the faded, they celebrate the beauty in the unexpected.
