Photographer's Note

: Burano is an island far off the main Venetian island group. Nearly an hour on a vaporetto from Venezia.
It's an island of fishermen and lacemakers, mostly. Burano's famous bright colours are told to be chosen for the sake of the boats returning home from afar and sometimes in a fog.
They seemed to me too kitschy in the beginning, but in an hour or so I became quite used to them and liked them a lot. Also they go so well with today's cheap plastics, that are in use everywhere. All together it acquired an esthetics of its own.
