Casa dei Gatti. Gravina in Puglia, Italia. | The House of Cats. Gravina in Puglia, Italy.

Ilford FP4
selenium toned silver gelatin print

Located in the heart of Citta Vecchia (the oldest part of the city), this alley was a source entertainment during my 2007 and 2008 visits to Gravina. The vacant apartment to the right seemed to house a limitless amount of cats. When I set up my camera, only one remained to watch (sitting just to the left of the empty doorway).

The shed in the center of the frame had been demolished when I visited Gravina in 2011.

Photographed using a Graflex Crown Graphic 4x5 camera and Kodak Ektar 127mm f/4.5 lens. Image printed on Kentmere fiber-based paper.
