ROD in VENICE II

From the 30th September I am back in Venice for a residency and exhibition at the Emily Harvey Foundation. I will spend a part of each day photographing 'The Colours of Venice' and posting them here, I will also make videos of 'Venice in Transit'.If you haven't had the good fortune to visit the beautiful city then join me here and let me show it to you through the lens of my camera.See More

Swan Song Hat design dedicated to Rod Summers / Vec who has declared an upcoming retirement (sometime in Spring 2014?) from the activity of sending mailart.

06.02.14 Dare Mister Rod Summers, Wow!!!...I saw the image of your newly baked bread at the Mail Art Café. You are a real artist...no wonder you are willing to let go of this shuffling of cardboard concept...(i.e. didn't I read somewhere that you were gonna retire from all this nonsense???) Best to you.
