Venice – The Exhibition

At last! The much-delayed Venice exhibition is now open. The 10 images depict life in Venice along the back canals where people live and work. This aspect of Venice fascinated me much more than the big-ticket tourist attractions.

A gallery of the images in the exhibition is here.

The exhibition is at:

Breizoz, 139 Nelson Place, Williamstown, Victoria, Australia.

    Wonderful exhibition Rob !!
    You have truly captured the serene ‘real life’ world of the Venetians. Beautiful colors and textures, the tones are so real to life you can almost smell that salty almost dank air that hovers over the canals in the early morning.
    Seeing the prints hanging is so much more sensual than seeing a digital image on screen.
    It is the final statement we make of the many choices we have when processing.
    It says ‘this is it’…’this is how I see it’ and we can put the images aside and move on to the next project.
    You have done your job well and I look forward see what you tackle next.
    John and Jacquie.

    I stood in Venice, on the Bridge of Sighs;
    A palace and a prison on each hand:
    I saw from out the wave her structures rise
    As from the stroke of the enchanter’s wand:
    A thousand years their cloudy wings expand
    Around me, and a dying Glory smiles
    O’er the far times, when many a subject land
    Look’d to the winged Lion’s marble piles,
    Where Venice sate in state, thron’d on her hundred isles!

    George Gordon Lord Byron (1788-1824)
