Beautifully Candid Moments in Italy Throughout the 1980’s

Photographer Charles H. Traub recently released this beautiful series of work, Dolce Via, that transports viewers back in time to Italy in the 1980’s. Throughout the decade, the artist frequently visited Italy and during that time, he captured candid moments of people and places through his lens.

With an American gaze, Traub documented the culture, fashion trends, and lifestyle of Italians from Milan to Marsala. The photographs are filled with rich colors and expressive moments that translate across languages. According to Howard Chua-Eoan at TIME, the work is “sensual and sad, bursting with color and pleasure, magnificent even in its melancholy. That is the eternal nature of Italy, the very nature of every thing.”

The title of the series is a play on dolce vita (the sweet life). With one letter missing, Traub’s title translates to the sweet way. Though the images were taken in the 1980’s, this is the first time they are seen together in one collective series, Dolce Via: Italy in the 1980’s, a book that can be purchased through the artist’s shop.
