UNCONVENTIONAL images of modern day Italy feature in a new photographic exhibition by former Visitor photographer Mark Harrison.

Mark, who lives in Caton and works in Kendal, spent part of the summer of 2011 photographing Naples, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast.

His travel photography has taken him to more than 60 countries where he has documented the ordinary and sometimes extraordinary lives of the people.

Currently facing recession, the Italy Mark encountered was seldom a picture of perfection. It was noisy, dirty, rough, fast-paced and extremely hot. The most highly recommended locations – Positano, Capri and central Sorrento – were expensive tourist traps.
