Introduce Manuela De Leonardis, al termine della presentazione seguirà il book signing con l’autrice.
Il libro “la Terza Venezia”, nasce a conclusione di una residenza nella città di Venezia. Pensato come un diario onirico, è composto da vedute della città e brevi testi. Le immagini esplorano i luoghi attraverso il filtro dell’immaginazione e del sogno, seguendo una divisione in quattro serie tematiche: “Nautofoni” (immagini della città immersa nella nebbia), “Souvenir” (tipici oggetti-ricordo veneziani ambientati in luoghi anonimi della città); “Fantasmi”(leggende e storie surreali che hanno per soggetto Venezia); e infine “Quando comincia l’acqua” (storie di allagamenti, reali e immaginati, di palazzi e chiese).
Il volume ha una serie, in edizione limitata, di sole 100 copie comprendenti una fotografia originale numerata e firmata dall’artista.

Gas & Electrical Engineers est 1808”. The gallery’s owner, Gigi Giannuzzi, who also founded the publishing house Trolley Books, decided to name his gallery after the building’s old occupants.
The Only House Left Standing by Tom Hurndall – slideshow of images on Guardian website today
Sean O’Hagan reviews Tom Hurndall’s book The Only House Left Standing:
Tom Hurndall was a peace activist and an aspiring photojournalist. His photographs, alongside his journals, bear witness to the often terrible, sometimes uplifting, events he saw and experienced while living among families in Iraq, in a refugee camp in Jordan, and in the Gaza Strip. It was there on 11 April 2003 that he was shot in the head by an Israeli soldier while attempting to rescue a child who had been pinned down by gunfire. He died nine months later in hospital in London. He was 22….
