144. PASSAGES. Saint Thomas, US Virgin Islands. Christopher Columbus “sighted” this island in 1493. The photo has an odd look, more like a studio setup with a fake background than an extemporanious landscape. Speaking of which, for some of the best studio-for-outdoors shots, take a look at Fellini’s La Dolce Vita for the scenes on (an entirely constructed) Via Veneto. The word iconic is thrown around a lot these days, but Anouk Aimee and Marcello Mastroianni in black and white at Cinecitta? Spettacolare.
