“Is there a way to portray Venice, during the Carnival, including the historic appeal of its colourful masks without denying it is happening in a new millennium?”

This book is a challenge. I dropped my favourite black and white film to opt for a contemporary medium, digital colour photography, with the purpose of putting a secular tradition in the contemporary setting where it is taking place today.

About the Author

Valerio Berdini
liveon35mm UK
Born in Rome, Italy in 1970, Valerio Berdini is now resident in Cambridge, UK. Photographing from a very young age, he has developed a personal language that merges a traditional aesthetic, influenced by the masters of photojournalism, with an incessant attention to the evolution of contemporary society. His photographic projects bring his cameras around the world where a transformation is in place. Valerio always seeks for eye contact. Either with singles, small groups or huge masses, hearing stories from people is the driving force to put together his own stories. As a live music photographer he is recognized within the International live music scene with an archive of hundreds of bands shot and has been published on numerous music related publications. Valerio work has been published in national and international papers and magazines, including Travel Photography, L’Actualité, Grazia, The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian and The Independent.
