Alex Majoli photographs Venice with the Leica M9-P:
Magnum photographer Alex Majoli explored the streets and canals of Venice with the new Leica M9-P. His living, breathing shots present a genuine and authentic look behind the scenes of the famous city. A city filled with traditions. One of which, without a doubt, is the profession of the gondolieri. It is almost impossible to imagine the city of canals and bridges without the typical black gondolas that, even today, are built by hand by highly skilled craftsmen according to a heritage of secrets reaching back over many hundreds of years. Alex Majoli accompanied one of the around 700 gondolieri for several days and captured a sensitive portrait of the gondolier and his city. See the city familiar from thousands of photographs in an entirely new light.
Butch Dalisay: “When you step into Venice for the very first time … you smile, and smile.”
Hmmm … I wonder why?
