Enzo Cucchi and his loafers

June 2, 2016


“This was taken just outside of Rome in the summer of 1986. At that point, I spoke no Italian and Enzo spoke no English. I thought I had gotten the picture I wanted but then this man reached into the frame to retrieve his glasses. That’s one of the beautiful things about photography; that moment changed everything.

Enzo is the most elegant man. I often see him reading the paper in the morning in Piazza Navona in Rome, where I spend part of the year now.”
