Hunting thruout Venice’s canals and alleys for something special to photograph, I came upon this painted figure at the end of an alley. There was an artist who had painted these shadowy figures thruout Venice the second year that I was in Venice working on a series of photographs of the city by full moonlight. Every now and then you’d come across one. It always took you by surprise because you would never anticipate it. I never found out who the artist was nor do I know what became of the work itself but it held an allure for me. Click once on image to enlarge.
