About the Book
The Mobile Pictures Series and the selection of images in this book pay homage to analogue, instant, and mobile photography while capturing glimpses of the everyday in Sicily.
This work, in part, documents Ronan Haughton's relationship with the places he traveled to together with his partner (who is from India). The narratives in this series of books are not always in the order in which an account or sequence of events occurred and there are also images that are dreamlike, abstract or magical, which skew any attempt at linear storytelling.
