Photography from the years I lived and worked in Venice.
VENICE a Dream Within a Dream
If there is one city in the world that you should visit in your life then it must be Venice.
Painters and composers, writers, poets ,sculptures and film makers have lived ,worked loved and died there. Some are buried there on the funeral island. Richard Wagner, Oscar Wild, Wassily Kandinsky, and Sergei Diaghilev to mention a few. Movies like Visconti’s Death in Venice fills your mind. Walking through Venice day and night is like walking in a painting by Canaletto, listening to the romantic music of Moriconi. The many canals, with over ...small bridges, and piazza St Marco as the heart of Venezia and the Islands of Lido, Murano and Burano, create a variety that is breathtaking.
I came to Venice already as a child with my mother who loved the sinking masterpiece of a city.
I have since then experienced Venice through me life in all its lights, seasons ,flooding's , Carnaval's, and even in snow and ice. I have lived there for years and will always come back.
There is always a Champagne Bellini waiting at Ernest Hemingway’s hang out Harry’s Bar , or a coffee and Strega at Cafe Florian. But the best is to go away from the touristic center and get lost in the labyrinth of narrow allies and find yourself wondering in a time capsule, like Edgar Allan Poe said when he lived in Venezia
its like a "dream within a dream".
