Paolo Fusco: Fiori 24h

With his night walks the Roman photographer Paolo Fusco paints the portrait of a sleeping city, dotted with flourished lighthouses.

Paolo Fusco, <i>Fiori 24h</i>
Hardly anything is open 24h in Rome: a few bars, a few stores, self service gas stations and flower kiosks, a lot of flower kiosks. You can find them everywhere in the city and they never close, opened 365 days a year, 24h a day.
“Their presence has always fascinated me, they seem like sentinels in the quiet roman night, small lighthouses populated by half-asleep immigrant workers. An hint of mystery sorrounds them, but it’s probably just a business model which takes advantage of the immigrant workers’ need to have a place to spend the night.” Paolo Fusco explains.

Paolo Fusco is a photographer based in Rome. His work mainly focuses on architecture and urban landscape, but often looks at social issues. He is a member of the Shoot4Change community, and his photos have been published on La Repubblica, Urbanautica, New Landscape Photography, Witness Journal, Living Roome, and elsewhere.
