The Light of Venice

Author(s): Jean-Michel Berts

Photography

In his fifth volume in Assouline's successful series, photographer Jean-Michel Berts turns his lens to Venice. For centuries, writers, artists, musicians, poets, and dreamers of all kinds have wandered this captivating city, finding inspiration in its labyrinth of hidden lanes and myriad bridges. In The Light of Venice, Berts guides readers through the twists and turns of his photographic journey, relating through images and journal entries the emotions the city evokes. Venice is the place that awakened his passion for urban photography, and his profound enchantment with Venice is palpable in each image. Accompanied by his "faithful old camera," and with a prayer to Lumens, his name for the god of photography, Berts reveals La Serenissima through his ethereal black and white photographs taken at daybreak, when the city's magnificent architecture is shrouded in misty solitude.
