"Scenes from a Venetian Carnival" is a collection of photographic composites which blend the atmospheric textures of Venice with scenes from its oldest and most storied public celebration, Carnevale.

The project blends in-the-moment scenarios of the contemporary Venetian Carnival with textural overlays of crumbling walls and ghostly reflections from the city's canals to create a a dream-like landscape in which archetypal figures play out their roles embedded within the ancient time-worn walls of the city. It is a story of lost time, fantasy, and the age-old human instinct to lose oneself in role-play and collective bacchanalia.

This companion book to the print series offers a sampling of the larger work in colorful double-truck spreads.
