Fulvio Roiter (1926-2016) was an Italian photographer; beginning as a chemist, he committed himself to photography in 1947, documenting various cities in stunning series of black-and-white photographs. During his career, Roiter published about one hundred photography books, including "Ombrie, Terre de saint Francois", which won the second edition of the Prix Nadar, a prestigious annual prize awarded for photography books in France. Roiter's photographs have a gentle poignancy that captures the essence of the people and places he visited.
