“Great images do not need a commentary or a context to elucidate them. As a matter of fact it is the greatness of the images themselves that gives a meaning to the context.” - Gianni Berengo Gardin


“Gianni’s words above are so true. It is hard for me to articulate why this image has such power for me and for many others too as it has been one of his most significant and popular images of his long and illustrious career. Maybe because it was shot in England, the land of my birth. Maybe it is because this is the first car I ever owned, a Morris Minor. But it surely plays into so many other subconscious “facts" that I am not even aware of...


Gianni’s images are quiet but resonate such emotion. He observes, reflects and is touched by what he sees. This couple is perhaps seeking refuge from cold and windy weather as is often the case in this climate. We are not privy to what they are saying to each other if they are indeed talking at all. But I feel I am with them in whatever moments they are sharing as we all may be sharing our own moments together. In a different time and place.” – Peter Fetterman
