Rome, Italy, May 08, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Rome Luxury Suites has chosen Epstein Photography to decorate the walls of their newest hotel, Babuino 181, which opens in autumn 2009. Architect, Fabrizio Magnaghi is placing the work of Diane Epstein in the lobby, hallways, and twelve suites within frames over five feet tall. In addition to several sepia and color photographs, the hotel will also exhibit Epstein’s impressionistic pieces, which are created using a unique technique of layering multiple photographs, including ancient sites and crumbling walls to create a painterly, fresco-like image.
Her subjects include the monuments, statues, fountains, and secret corners of Rome, many of which are located just a short walk from Babuino 181, betweem Piazza del Popolo and Piazza di Spagna. This fall, in addition to the inauguration of this permanent display, Epstein’s photography will be exhibited at a solo show at the American Embassy in Rome, which will open in October, 2009.
