Padlocks adorn wire mesh in an air vent in Giotto's bell tower, with a view of Brunelleschi's Dome and the Florence Duomo behind. The locks are frequently removed from gates and fences by local authorities because so many are left by tourists, but these were strategically placed in scaffolding holes where they are too difficult to remove.
Dave is an American documentary photographer whose devotion to capturing unstaged, real moments is reflected in the diversity, spontaneity, and sincerity of his collections. As a National Geographic Explorer and Nat Geo Magazine photographer, he initiated eclectic stories including the search for a lost Leonardo da Vinci mural, the exploration of a lost city in unexplored jungle in Honduras (chronicled in Douglas Preston's NYT #1 bestselling book The Lost City of the Monkey God), and after recruiting the help of all three American ambassadors stationed in Rome, he was granted the best access any outside photojournalist has ever had to any pope, for his Nat Geo Magazine cover story and book on Pope Francis. He was born in Goshen, Indiana, USA, but grew up on the foothills of Kilimanjaro, and currently lives with his wife in rural south west France.
