I´ve just received the pdf proof for the forthcoming book, “Travel, Modernism and Modernity” written by Dr. Robert Burden. I´m very pleased about this because not only did I provided the main cover photograph (a Tuscany Landscape) but also did the picture search for the book´s subjects (Joseph Conrad, E.M. Forster, D.H, Lawrence, Edith Wharton and Henry James) and the photo montage. The book, published by Ashgate Publishing Limited, in the USA, will be appearing soon.

Italian Trabocchi on Abruzzo´s south coast

Trabocchi are private piers used for fishing. They belong to local families who live in and around Vasto on Italy´s Abruzzo coast – a bit like an allotment they also act as their “get aways”.  They are strange Heath Robinson constructions which seemed to me to be organic in their construction – a bit added here, another bit added there. Although Trabocchi look thrown together and fragile, they are strong enough to withstand the storms that blow across the area.

The coming storm. Dachstein Mountains Austria

This is the view taken from the Gablonzer Hut looking over towards the Hoher Dachstein (2995m) Massive and the Großer Gosua glacier. I took it late afternoon after a hot days walking from the Hopfgügl Hut. A few minutes later the view was gone and a violent thunder storm was raging across the area. It´s one of life´s pleasures to witness the storm from the safety of the hut. But also to be thankful not to be in it on a mountain and maybe battling for ones life!
