This is the study of a particular work of a great artist of the Italian Renaissance and famous all over the world: Michelangelo Buonarroti. It is a magnificent wood carving depicting Christ on the Cross. One of the early works, was performed in 1493 and is now well preserved in the church of Santo Spirito in Florence (Italy).

Photographer Luigino Visconti has several shots of the sculpture itself. Moreover, in his store, you will find a wide range of reproductions of works of art in museums and churches in Italy. In the case, the image you require is not immediately available, Luigino can quickly produce new material, with a high standard of professionalism, anywhere in Italy.

Craig Robinson is a Berlin-based photographer from California who specializes in photographs of people and events. A long term photo documentary on the cause and effect of gentrification is in the works. In the wake of the recent East Side Gallery / Berlin Wall removal protests on March 1, 2013, we have to ask ourselves how much power we should give to greedy developers whose only interest is building bigger bank accounts rather than building communities.

Gentrification is the subject of an ongoing documentary photography and writing project by Craig Robinson. The subject is urban gentrification and its effect on society.

"It is more than just a series of standoffs between stoic police and dirty hippies. Gentrification is a byproduct of the bubble economies which at first promise to inflate local economies in desirable cities, but in fact leave communities shattered, rents raised across the board, and a mass exodus of whole income groups. The bubble bursts and we all pay."

Included in the Gentrification photo documentary are images of the restoration of the East Side Gallery / Berlin Wall in 2009, the closure of Arthouse Tacheles by developers in 2012 and most recently, the protests at the East Side Gallery.
