So... there was this woman who fell in love with Marina GrandeS
...and so she began an adventure...
American photographer Nancy Robinson has been exploring and documenting
Italy's enchanting Campania region for the past three years. She came to
Sorrento for a visit, found she literally could not stay away, and decided
she was never going to leave again. Grace Gallery is the result. All are
invited to visit the little shop on Via Tasso, take a break, and reflect on
once and future adventures.
Born and raised in the New York City area, Nancy was educated at the High
School of Performing Arts in Manhattan, and at the State University of New
York at Buffalo. Nancy's work has been exhibited in galleries and museums
in the New York City area and in Newport, Rhode Island, and she has taught
photography in various locations. Her large body of work includes
photographs taken in various parts of Italy, New York, and New England.
Each evocative and intimate photo, be it an Amalfi Coast piazza or a crowded
Times Square street corner, seems to capture the essence of the place or
person. Nancy's objective is to provide the area's visitors with unique,
quality, alternative remembrances at affordable prices.
"I feel very fortunate," Nancy says, "to be in this region of incredible
visual beauty, and to have the opportunity to show and share my photographs
and am excited about further explorations in this wonderful and supportive
environment. Grace Gallery was more than two years in the making, and
simply would not have been possible without the help of many kind people in
Sorrento, and without the grace of God."
Nancy's photographs are taken in a traditional 35 mm format, and she devotes
much time and attention to the printing process, which is done digitally.
Great care has been taken to achieve a complete tonal range and vivid, rich
colors, in fact, Nancy's photographs have an almost painterly quality. Nancy
has chosen the digital printing process because it provides her with greater
freedom and control. Archival photo paper and inks, which have been rated at
a minimum of twenty-five years without fading, are used for all prints.
Great care has been taken to produce a finished print of the highest
