Italian term or phrase: a sua volta (Here)
After a paragraph the style and talents of this photographer, and his ability to create the amazing style that he does, the next paragraph begins as follows: ....

Il fotografo, a sua volta, si impegna a oggettivizzare questo tragicomico fenomeno mondiale – l'affanno dell'uomo – e vive dell'interesse e della fruizione del pubblico-spettatore.

I am not sure the best way to translate "a sua volta", both "for his part" and "in his turn" sound odd and do not seem to lead on from the previous sentence very well. So I need a suggestion or two if possible.

Thank you.

I think "for his part" is probably best here.

agree  philgoddard: Any of these is fine, including leaving it out, since it doesn't add much to the sentence.
