A small collection of work from a few hours shooting in Venice.
Last month I was lucky enough to go to a conference in Venice with work. The event, called Immersive Architecture, was focused on the use of Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Mixed Reality (MR) within the AEC industry (architecture, engineering and construction). So many acronyms. It was a very interesting event and the subjects are by far the most exciting developments within my industry for many years.
I had never been to Venice before, so naturally I was very interested in trying to see as much of the city as possible and — of course — to shoot the streets. So each morning of the 2 day conference I rose at 6am and headed straight out for photo walks.
Here’s a small collection of what I captured in those few hours. Much of the work street photographers often share is built up of individual captures spread across large periods of time. But I really enjoy seeing work of this format, i.e. a collection from a short trip or period of time. Work such as that of 8Street, a collective of wedding photographers who take group street photography trips out to different cities and locations together. I believe work of this kind makes the photographer less reliant on capturing a 1 in a 1000 moment, and instead pushes their ability to work a scene and use light and composition in interesting ways. Likewise, some of Instagram's more prolific street photographers such as Streetamatic and Six Street Under (thinking I need a more catchy street photographer name, maybe MAD on Street?), seem to work in this way.
I hope you enjoy the collection.
