Emerson in Italy
The book Emerson in Italy, published 1989, contains a series, which developed by the idea of following Ralph Waldo Emerson's journey through Italy in 1833. Hofer was simulating the trails of the poet and put it on a photographic record.
The photographer managed to show the country in its eternalness, just like Emerson recently was there.

The series Emerson in Italy comprises images of landscapes, architecture, documents, monuments, sculptures and interior designs, all originated in Italy, Sicily and Malta.
