"Shot in Sicily" presents Michael Roberts complex view of Sicily its people, traditions, and landscape filtered through his photographic work for and beyond the fashion world. Spanning 20 years, the book traces Roberts changing vision of a sensual and ambiguous environment. Referencing Baron Wilhelm von Gloedens photography and evoking the films of Visconti and Bolognini, Roberts sense of Sicily moves beyond strict aesthetic categories. His camera captures the beauty of youth, crumbling temples, traditional Easter parades, and the theater of daily life to recreate the allure of Sicily, even for those who have not yet been there. Michael Roberts work as a stylist, fashion editor, photographer and illustrator has shaped magazine culture for the past decades. Throughout his illustrious career, Roberts has held numerous positions including fashion editor of the "Sunday Times", fashion director at "The New Yorker", and his current post as fashion and style director at "Vanity Fair".
His work has enhanced numerous publications including Tatler, Interview, and Paris Vogue, and his witty collages were celebrated in "The Snippy World of Michael Roberts", edited by Grace Coddington and published by Edition 7L in 2005.
