Paul Cary Goldberg started photographing in Caffé Sicilia in the spring of 2007. He had been working at this corner establishment located in the port city of Gloucester, Massachusetts, for eight years, and knew many of the regulars: mostly men of Sicilian descent. He had first brought his new digital photo camera to the café to become familiar with it. After using film for 30 years, it seemed to him that the café, with its people, activities, and intimate space, offered an ideal place to learn. He soon discovered how complex and rich this small, modest café is, and how deeply culture is woven into the personality and life of the people. A deep mutual respect and affection arose.
