Nothing is ordinary about the Italian city of Venice. Whether it is the vividly-colored architecture that dates back to Gothic and Byzantine eras, or the fact that the city is floating on water, culturally-rich Venice is an intriguing destination for people of all backgrounds and interests.
With every visit to Venice, London-based architect and photographer Mayank Thammalla found himself discovering new scenic views of the city, ones that are often tucked beneath its architecture. In his recent photographic series ‘Echoes of Venice’, Thammalla used the canal ripples as his canvas and displayed the deteriorating architecture of Venice from a unique, inverted perspective.
I found a sense of calmness as the reflections assured me that my reality can be whatever I can imagine, that is not consumed by societies conceptions on the world. I thought to myself, nothing can be more real than this; the reflections painted by motion that exploded into millions of colors and formations - Mayank Thammalla
