In the artist's own words: “I took this picture of a typical neighborhood in Rome (Trastevere). When I frst took the picture, I did not see it as anything special. The more I looked at it, I began to appreciate everything about it – the light, the various patterns, the details of the man's face, and also the irony of the cartoon – like graftti in the background.”
