I worked for 5 years as expedition artist for the Italian Archaeological Team in the Yemen. While I was there, I recorded, in ink drawings, the beautiful and fragile architecture in several areas of the country. Fearing that many buildings might not survive, I began a sort of typology, making as many drawings as I could. At home, I re-drew them onto copper plates, etched and printed them on my press. I consider this an unfinished work, and hope to continue with more drawings on site one day.
