C Photo: Real Venice
For the second issue of its C Photo Collection, Ivorypress promoted an original initiative together with the Venice in Peril Foundation: 14 artists created a series of photographic works about Venice and donated them to Venice in Peril to be sold to raise funds to preserve the city from decay. These photographic projects comprised the Real Venice exhibition that was part of the 54th Venice Biennale. They are also illustrated in this volume, together with a selection of essays that underline the long-standing relationship between Venice and photography. Texts by Maria Antonella Pelizzari, Claudio Piersanti and William A. Ewing. Portfolios by Hiroshi Watanabe, Jules Spinatsch, Dionisio González, Nan Goldin, Tim Parchikov, Candida Höfer, Mimmo Jodice, Robert Walker, Matthias Schaller, Lynne Cohen, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Tiina Itkonen, Antonio Girbés and Pierre Gonnord.
Foreword by Elena Ochoa Foster and Anna Somers Cocks. Texts by Maria Antonella Pelizzari, Claudio Piersanti and William A. Ewing.
