Johnnie Shand Kydd is well known for his portraits of infamous friends, but ten years ago he set out on an all together different project - to photograph the streets of Naples, capturing the corruption and drama, the traditions and cultures, that unfold around each street corner. "Every street and piazza is a stage, with the neapolitan people responding to the camera lens in a very unique way." For this special talk the legendary documentary photographer will be talking about his latest work and signing copies of his beautiful book Siren City, published by Other Criteria.
