About the Book
This book is the result of photographing the winter celebration of Carnival in Venice for three years. I included many new images from Carnival 2010 that I haven't previously published, plus favorites and some new pictures from Carnival 2008 and 2009. My goal is to share the grandeur and majesty of Venetian Carnival with readers, and hopefully, inspire them to visit Venice and experience Carnevale di Venezia first hand.
Dennis Griffin, a photographer for 40 plus years, is a native of Southern California. He founded Studio Griffoto in 2007 to market his fine art imagery. His award winning work spans four decades and encompasses nature and landscape photography, form photography, travel photography and digital imaging. Mr. Griffin’s unique style and eye for composition are clearly reflected throughout the broad scope of his images captured in California, Hawaii and other parts of the United States, as well as Italy and many other countries in Europe. To quote the artist: “I have always been fascinated by the interplay of color, design, and the magical effects of light and reflections. From the early days working in darkrooms smelling of acetic acid to the present using the immaculate technology of inkjet printers, my goal of making images has remained unchanged...a desire to optimize these elements in order to create uniquely artful images."
