The greatest challenge for a person when photographing a famous city is to find images of that very place that are not stereotypes. Obviously when one thinks of Venice, the first thing that comes to mind is gondolas in the canals. But since I didn’t want to photograph the predictable image the way it is commonly seen, it was interesting moving the camera and viewfinder over the gondola I had chosen, in such a way as to cut off various parts of the boat. This created elegant curved lines and shapes, as well as an inter-play of positive and negative shapes. The viewer definitely has to think twice about what he or she is looking at.
