Chasing the fog: A photographic essay on Montalcino by London-based, Montalcino-born filmmaker Oliver Cooper

When we think of Montalcino, endless vineyards planted to Sangiovese are what first come to mind.

But “the undulating hills not covered by vineyards,” writes London-based and Montalcino-born filmmaker Oliver Cooper for Suitcase magazine this month, “are the real stars of the show though. Soft and poetic, they look their best at sunrise and sunset. It’s worth leaving the main roads and getting lost among them to really take it all in.”

His notes accompany “Chasing the Fog,” a breathtaking photo essay published by the magazine. Shot with analog film (yes, they stil make analog film), the piece achieves a depth of expression — some would argue — unattainable in digital media.

But don’t let us be the judge. Take a look for yourself.

As Oliver notes, it’s “a simple beauty that never gets old.”
