Venice - Off the Beaten Track
Venice is one of the most distinguishable cities in the world. Its classic views and trademark canals full of gondolas make it a very distinctive and instantly recognisable place. Trying to find the less obvious views is actually harder than it sounds in a city as compact as Venice. This image was taken looking out over the backwaters of the Venetian lagoon. It was surprisingly calm and quiet and not a gondola or vaporetto in sight.
Born and raised in Ireland, photographer and artist Maggy Morrissey is greatly inspired by the beautiful coast of her homeland, but also travels to other locations throughout Europe to make her very recognisable photographs.
Her calming, minimalist style, successfully blending her love of painting and photography, forms part of art collections worldwide. She has held numerous exhibitions in Dublin, where she is now based.
