A unique nighttime vision of the Venetian lagoon, between a theatrical Venice and the 'cinematic' Marghera, is the subject for this new collection from Luca Campigotto. The photographer juxtaposes the familiar images of a 'tourist's' Venice with a noirish perception of the Marghera zone, an industrial district of docks and commerce, rarely visited by outsiders.
