If you have read about my history, you know I have been a commercial photographer for over 45 years. That job has taken me to many countries, and this image is from one of those assignments. 

It was the third time I was in Europe shooting for London-based McArthur Glen, Europe’s largest developer of designer outlet centers. This time we came to the newest one, the Barberino Center. Located about a 45-minute drive north of Florence, it is a beautifully designed layout that sits in the Mugello, a historic region and valley in northern Tuscany, corresponding to the course of the River Sieve. And the river actually flows right through the centre. 

In the course of documenting a day in the centre (European spelling of course!) I captured a myriad of architectural details. And while of course the buildings are beautifully colored in the pastels you would expect to find here. this one just called out to me to be converted to black and white. This accented the graceful curves, and showcases the graceful architecture that elevates this center above your average outlet centre. 

This image was accepted in The Southeast Center for Photography’s “Architecture” Exhibition in 2023, in Greenville, SC
