Following Hadrian

An Evening with Carole Raddato

Event Description

CUNY's Latin/Greek Institute and the Paideia Institute are pleased to co-host an evening with Carole Raddato. Over the past decade, Carole Raddato has established herself as the world’s premier photographer of (especially) Roman antiquity. Raddato so far has photographed over 1000 sites and museums focusing on the classical past, many outside of continental Europe. Her images, since 2019 archived at the American Academy in Rome, have found their way now into hundreds of academic books. “I usually try to use Hadrian’s journeys as a leading thread for my own adventures”, says Raddato, now engaged in a 17 year project “to try to follow Hadrian’s journeys according to the year they were undertaken”. Carole, who has a massive social media following (@carolemadge on Twitter) has also published a steady stream of illustrated essays, including for Ancient History Magazine, the online Ancient History Encyclopedia, Antigone Journal, as well as on her own photo blog, Based in Germany (Frankfurt am Main) where she works as a chart analyst for the UK music industry, Carole Raddato’s April 2023 visit to the US east coast marks her first lectures in North America.
