Hardcover, half cloth, curated by Alessandro Calabrese and Milo Montelli, design by Alessandro Calabrese, Milo Montelli and Nicholas McLean. Edition of 500 copies.

„The result of many years work, the photographs gathered in A Drop In the Ocean date from the '70s and '80s and are but a few of the many thousands taken by the Italian Naturalist Sergio Romagnoli during his all too brief lifetime. The primary interest for the curators, Alessandro Calabrese and Milo Montelli, besides their natural human fascination for an incredible story, lay in the opportunity to interact with a rough body of images free of any artistic claim.
Sergio's images reveal themselves with a tangible purity; comforting companions during the many hours that the curators spent leafing through his archives, photo albums and ephemera. Seemingly simple yet highly proficient, Sergio's photographs demonstrate an acute visual sensitivity, closely connected to factual reality yet powerfully evocative of the viewer's own experiences; an evocation of journeys, encounters and study aimed at discovering, knowing and understanding. The act of seeing as common denominator.

Photographs that could easily be defined as merely amateurish blend into others of a more technical and scientific nature, all driven by an almost obsessive need to catalogue life, especially the plant kingdom. In presenting the relationship between such different approaches – however detached by labile boundaries – the aim of the curators is to give voice to the unconsciously authorial potential lying within the photographer's body of work. A potential which would otherwise never be brought to light. More than a mere collection of dusty archive photographs, A Drop In The Ocean was conceived, with honour and gratitude, as a creative homage to Sergio Romagnoli's life and work.“
