Slow: Life in a Tuscan Town PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Slow: Life in a Tuscan Town free pdf "SLOW: Life in a Tuscan Town" is an unprecedented photographic personal journey into the heart of hidden Tuscany that celebrates the principles that define the Slow Food movement and pays tribute to the region's kaleidoscope of vibrant characters, whose shared culture revolves around the everyday pleasure of growing, preparing, and eating food.
With an anecdotal charm reminiscent of Peter Mayle's "A Year in Provence," Douglas Gayeton's interplay of pictures and words conveys a thrilling narrative that transports you halfway around the globe to the charming town of Pistoia, nestled in the outskirts of Florence. There we meet the mushroom hunters and sheep farmers, the winemakers and fishermen, the bakers, butchers and chocolate makers whose lives are profoundly bound to the rhythms of nature. It is a riveting story told in a riveting way: each image comprised of multiple photographs taken over a period of time that can range anywhere from ten minutes to several hours, and layered with Gayeton's handwritten notes, recipes, facts, and sayings. With this process, Gayeton has managed to introduce the concept of story and time- both compressed and exploded, into his portraits. The result is a photographic approach critics have dubbed flat film- the effect is exhilarating.
As Gayeton observes, "What my eyes saw was always grander than any lens could capture...How could I introduce the presence of time, of an emerging and evolving story comprised of not one, but many moments, into a single photograph?" In the accompanying text, Gayeton offers an absorbing first person account of his immersion into rural Italian culture, offering an intimacy that draws us deeper into this romantic and rustic world. A photographer, a pioneering new media creator, a wonderful writer and an award winning documentarian, Gayeton is passionately interested in food, culture, art, and people.
