The Light Of Venus

My name is Brandon Latcham and I am a Photographer. In late October I embarked upon the most challenging journey of my life; ; for six months I trained for a cycling tour across Italy. I became inspired by George Vasari, the first great art scholar of history. Vasari wrote a collection of biographies of Italian artists from Cimabue to the last grand chapter of Michael Angelo. Many of the roads I cycled were that of Vasari or the nomadic artists’ travels. My goal was to absorb the ascetic and knowledge of the lush culture and showcase it in my own style.

I set off with seventy five pounds of photography gear strapped precariously to the back. I felt very much like the tiny dog from “The Grinch Stole Christmas,” hauling a sleigh back to the Whovillians. Over seven weeks I had traveled a total of eight hundred kilometres; starting North East towardsTuscany and culminating in Umbria. The following are some of the gems. I found; amazing people and stories that drew reference from their rich and powerful history. I’ve also included some excerpts of a travel novel I’m writing  , and a bit of history.
