Sarah Quill: Venice and the Lagoon (Online exhibition)

Chris Beetles have put up a special online portfolio of mostly black and white images taken by Sarah Quill of Venice. It’s not available as a slideshow nor is it particularly easy to move between images but it is a nice selection of images and well worth the multiple clicks it takes to get the photos in large.

There’s an entertaining mix of slightly quirky slice of life pics (a couple of elephants striding across the place from 1981), images of working life (a cleaner works in the early morning mist at Campo Santo Stefano) and diverting takes on the more traditional images you associate with Venice (the Piazetta in fog) alongside which are a few architectural close-ups. It’s all lushly realised and beautifully presented – very much a love letter to the city.
