St. Peter's Basilica Rome 1964

1964. Adal's originals
Leonardo Benevolo layout

I had the pleasure of having my first photos published few years later
in Leonardo Benevolo Storia dell'architettura del Rinascimento (Laterza)
and in several books of Paolo Portoghesi on the Roman Baroque architecture.
I was 20 years old, and just a student of Architecture.

(Two superwide shots of Bernini Baldacchino in San Pietro, Rome.
As Benevolo said, Baroque photos of a Baroque object.)

Exakta Varex IIb ,Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 20mm f/4
8 sec f/8, Agfapan 25 ISO developed in Tetenal Neofin Blau

(and yes, I remember the exif by heart)

Many decades later, visiting the Roman Catholic Basilica in Montréal Québec Canada
which is a replica (Baldacchino included) of St. Peter's in Rome I had a vision...

other sizes: small medium original auto

I hear slug is going to use the PBase profits to build another replica in Chapel Hill, North Carolina with a painting of you on the ceiling. It'll be next door to the McDonalds.

Great images and I like how they are layed out next to each other in a kaleidoscopic manner, with the central arch. Lots to see.
And congratulations on getting into print so early!!

moi c'est maintenant que j'apprécie d'avoir 20 ans ;-)
car, lorsqu'on les a une deuxième fois on est plus expérimenté pour en mesurer la valeur!

Good for you, Adal. Teach us young whippersnappers a lesson in how it's done! N

I always find great inspiration in seing the work of experienced photographers... especially ones with 40 years in the field! (having been into this whole thing for something more than 2 years - yeah I admit it... I'm a newbie) The photos look very interesting and I love the way ou have presented them here... but still I would love to see some good quality scans (pretty please!) Happy "birth"day Adal
