Swedish photographer Martin Bogren (born 1967) spent the years 2013–15 in Italy creating this gorgeous and lyrical black-and-white photo-essay, his tribute to the country and the people he met on his travels. Bogren’s luscious images of everyday street scenes, anonymous passersby, languid smokers, extroverted pedestrians and remote silhouettes are suffused with an affectionate, soft-focus gaze, making them seem like long-lost, unattributed archival photographs from a vanished era. Beautifully designed, Italia is destined to become a photobook classic.
