Hardly anything is open 24h in Rome: a few bars, a few stores, self service gas stations and flower kiosks, a lot of flower kiosks. You can find them everywhere in the city and they never close. They never close.

Their presence has always fascinated me, they seem like sentinels in the quiet roman night,  small lighthouses populated by half-asleep immigrant workers.

The photos were taken while wandering through the city in search of these islands of light and flowers.

Paolo Fusco is based in Rome, but loves to travel.

He owns some cameras and a few lenses. He uses them to capture stories to be told and images to be remembered.

He is a proud member of the Shoot4change community. He works with Fotoup Agency, and his photos have been published on LaRepubblica, WitnessJournal, LivingRoome, NG Italia and elsewhere.
