Return to Sea and Sardinia 100

A pilgrimage in photographs

23rd May until 30th July

 In 1921, D.H. Lawrence and his wife Frieda travelled from Sicily to Sardinia.  It was a voyage which was to inspire one of the writer’s most significant travel works, Sea and Sardinia. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the book’s publication, the Fondazione Sardegna Film Commission supported Daniele Marzeddu to direct a new film, which retraces D.H. Lawrence’s steps, ‘Return to Sea and Sardinia’.

This photography exhibition shows 100 of the images taken as part of the project.  The images capture the historic buildings, the dramatic landscape and the contemporary inhabitants of the two islands: from The Duomo to street food stalls, and from the Ionian Sea to a Palermo storyteller, across to the Mediterranean Sea to reach Cagliari and finally on the train to interland Sardinia.
