This book is a compilation of 120 of my favorite images from Carnival 2009 in Venice, Italy. Despite the large crowds present, the models and participants afforded some remarkable opportunities to photograph the spectacular costumes and dazzling colors of this annual celebration. As the title suggests, this book represents my take on the faces and the fantasies associated with Carnevale 2009 in Venice.
Dennis Griffin, a photographer for 40 years, is a native of Southern California. He founded Studio Griffoto in 2007 to market his fine art imagery. His award winning work spans nearly 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 France, Germany, and Italy. 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 artful images has remained unchanged...a desire to capture the interplay of light and color to create unique images of beauty."
