Playing again with the installation by Heinz Mack, “The Sky Over Nine Columns”, that amazingly enriches the skyline of Venice and interacts with the city in a lot of different ways. This summer I have been trying to take advantage of this piece of art to photograph some of the most iconic building of Venice (St. Mark’s Bell Tower and Doge’s Palace) on a different perspective or through an unusual artistic frame.
Location: San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice.
What to shot: San Giorgio Maggiore has a small harbor, a renaissance church, a Benedictine monastery, but it also offers a good view of St. Mark’s Square and the lagoon across.
Ideal time to shot: I prefer to be at San Giorgio at sunset, when the light illuminates the Doge’s Palace and St. Mark’s Campanile sideways.
Gear: From wide angles to teles.
How to get there: Public transport water bus stations S. Giorgio (line 2).
