I’m headed to an opening of Andrea Zanatta’s photography show at the Galleria d’Arte l’Occhio in Dorsoduro (between the Salute and the Guggenheim) this evening. His evocative and haunting images of after-midnight Venice, photographed in the wee hours and often cloaked in fog, mist, and rain, make an even stronger impression as some are printed on canvas and are three by four feet in size.
If you’ll be in Venice this winter, stop by to see his work; or review it on the gallery web site where you can learn more about him as well. (FYI, the work that was selected for hanging in the gallery is not actually posted on the site.)
In the interest of full disclosure, I have NO commercial interest in this artist whatsoever, he’s just a good friend. If you like his work though, do stop by La Cantina on the Strada Nova (where he’s the co-owner), and tell him so!
Andrea’s show will be up until January 31, 2006. The Gallery is on the Calle del Bastion, Dorsoduro 181, between the Salute and the Guggenheim: here
