In the artist’s own words: “Two tourists and two lovers sit side by side on a bench in Piazza Navona. The tourists, presumably an American married couple, let space fall between one another and pay no attention to the young couple madly in love not one foot away. This photo depicts the strange dichotomy between European acceptance of public affection and American confidentiality.”
