Italy Industrial by Paul Vanzella


Available to buy on…

Italians just love their concrete, and once in a while will throw a piece of modernism architecture in an industrial area. I had so much fun in the early morning veering off into these areas and exploring the barren streets. There is the quintessential red and white stripe pole in the far, far distance that smacks of industrialism in Italy.

    Love it, Paul.
    Great lines, colours, treatment. Has that distinct surreal look that you specialise in. And love the overgrown ‘barber pole’ ;)

    Yes I see the pole, what a great pick up for the red on the main building. I like particularly what you’ve done with the grass here. The middish green, to the lighter green to the dry looking brownish ‘tough’ grass at the back. The grass is as industrial as everything else in this shot. You know ‘hard wearing-easy care-tough grass!’ In that sense it could be anywhere in the world. And the sky, it’s got so many colours in it. Your work is just so bloody good Paul!

    Yes what they said! Took a moment to find the barber pole, was like a Where’s Wally pic for a moment, was stuck on the blue sign. Love the square frame
