Tidal flooding has long threatened the Venetian lagoon, a danger that the high-tech MOSE (Modulo Sperimentale Elettromeccanico) project was founded to address. This volume collects photographs taken by Walter Niedermayr in 2008 of the lagoons and islands affected by the new system, captured with his characteristic use of dazzling light.
