La Fraschetta Del Borgo is a collection of photographs from in and around Rome, Italy, in which Joseph tells a story of the people, the places and experiences from his own visual perspective. Having traveled to Italy many times, Joseph loves looking at his favorite spots with new eyes and a fresh lens. He says that each time he takes a photo, it's like seeing an old friend. Joseph's exhibition will be on display at the Arts Council through Dec. 23 and can be viewed Monday - Friday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
