Ian Wilkinson has made many visits to the catacombs in Palermo. These remarkable images are the consequences of 2 dreams and 2 coincidences.
Triggered by a fortuitous meeting with the publisher in the City of London, Iain Sinclair accepted the kind of Sicilian offer that can’t be refused and left town for the Capuchin catacombs in Palermo. It proved to be a life-changing experience of death and all of its smoky mirrors. After years writing his way out of the labyrinth of London’s East End, Sinclair found himself in a true labyrinth, where all the familiar ghosts were waiting, ready and eager to dictate their stories.
