Butts of Florence by Erik Benjamins
In 2006, Erik Benjamins spent six months in Florence, Italy as an American student abroad. Eight years later, he returned for six weeks to teach, walk, watch, think, eat, and learn. Butts of Florence is a collection of writing and photographs taken during this six-week stay. Formal black and white photographs of the butts of various Florentine sculptures punctuate writing that adopts the forms of diaristic entries, appropriated letter writing, travel guide tips, restaurant reviews, and poetic prose. Together, text and image build the arc of a hungry, critical, introspective, romantic, and grateful visitor.
