After Tuscany: rediscovering home

As for the back story, here it is in Emily’s own words: “While studying abroad in Italy for three-and-a-half months, I kept a photo blog as a record of my experiences. Once home I wanted to rediscover my native Texas in the same way that I captured my curiosity and wonder while in Italy. Looking through my photos, I was struck by how much the Tuscan landscape reminded me of Texas. I began to collage photos together, transitioning my blog from Italy to the Lone Star State. These mirrored images highlight the similarities and dichotomies between the architecture, landscape, and lifestyle, and serve as a dialogue between the two cultures.”
