Walking the streets of Palermo somehow feels like you are immersed in a dramatic film set, with exotic backdrops, enriched by colourful characters and intense scenes.
I felt this way when I was in Palermo recently shooting photos at the local markets and trattorie.
It’s a bit of a sensory overload – and this is what makes it so appealing.
Here are some photos I shot for a recent article on the markets and street food of this extraordinary city.
