“Italianissimo” means “so Italian” or “very Italian”, and that is the essence of Richard Lasner’s exhibit which premiers 18 new photographic works featuring Italy. Mr. Lasner was privileged to explore the area surrounding one of the best small wineries in the Chianti Classico area for more than a week last Fall. Staying at a single location enabled him to capture the vineyard’s glory and the surrounding Tuscan hills at all hours of the day. Other images are from recent travels to Umbria, Lazio, and elsewhere in Tuscany. Mr. Lasner’s fourth place photography award in a 700 artist contemporary art exhibition in Florence, Italy has lead to international recognition. He has photographed in Italy each year since 1996. His work is in the permanent collections of six museums and has appeared in eight books.

Mr. Lasner’s archival prints are large-scale, lushly toned, and crafted in limited editions.
