Hiroyuki Masuyama photographs the ancient Roman landscapes that inspired artists of the past such as Marco Sadeler (1614-1660), Giovanni Antonio Canal (1697-1768), Giambattista Piranesi (1720– 1778), Luigi Rossini (1790- 1857) and Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775 – 1851), reconstructing them in a new dimension.
Hiroyuki Masuyama?s photographs return to a single utopian vision of the landscape and the most significant corners of the city of Rome, concentrating the Roman, Renaissance and contemporary ages in a single image. His choice to present the 300 images on exhibit printed on paper is a nod to the engravings of the past.
