Artist's Description

In Rome, on the ancient ruins of the Forii Imperiali, the statue of Caesar Augustus stands watch over what was once the center of civilization. Now, it is not uncommon to see a great many impoverished people up and down the street, trying to make a living off the generosity of tourists and kind souls in Rome.

I found the raw contrast of this woman’s powerlessness to Caesar’s strength too compelling not to attempt to photograph.
