It is held by some that this word VENETIA signifies VENI ETIAM, that is, come again, and again, for however oft you come, you will always see new things, and new beauties.
Venice has been captured in million images, both by painters and photographers and yet no painting or image is ever the same. There isn’t a single inch of Venice which won’t be beautiful once portrayed on canvas or captured on camera. Even the smallest and insignificant detail, if it is Venetian, acquires a superior significance and beauty.
I have known JoAnn for a few years now, we actually met when Dream of Venice was a little embryo in her mind, a true dream which she was determined to bring to life!
And through her and Charles’ sheer determination, their true and honest love for the city of water, their common passion for anything which is beautiful, they managed to create one of the best photo books on Venice which was ever published.
But let’s JoAnn Locktov introduce Dream of Venice to you:

It is the perfect liminal space induced by fog, water, and stones, which never align.
