From his website: "This series is based on photos taken during morning walks in Venice in June 2013. Each morning, as I walked past the luminous stucco walls of the city, I took photos of the color variations. The images are intentionally blurred to highlight the color palette and de-emphasize the surfaces or "object-ness" of the architecture. The series is organized in seven color groups meant to be exhibited as discreet sets of five images. They are inkjet prints in editions of 3 with 2 artist proofs. The prints are 28" x 28" on Hahnemühle Photo Rag, 308 gsm with Epson Ultrachrome Inkset."
