“Living in Rome is a once in a lifetime experience,” photographer Kevin Del Rosario begins explaining, “and an overwhelming adventure full of culture, amazing food and interesting people. I love taking photos of the famous landmarks, the classic side streets and scenes of daily life in the Eternal City.”

Originally from the Philippines, Kevin relocated to the Italian capital in 2007, where he works at a luxury boutique hotel in the city’s center. Since he’s always armed with a camera, whether it be his iPhone or DSLR, this extremely photogenic and history-laden area serves him well.

There’s nowhere else on earth where you can pass by the Colosseum — the most famous amphitheatre in the world — on your way to the grocery store,” he mentions. “Rome truly has the unique ability to mix modern with ancient.”
