I STOOD IN VENICE OVER THE WEEKEND AND IT RAINED

Global tourism has always been a present motif in my work. The series was shoot in Venice. On a rain-soaked weekend I photographed tourists who grappled with their cameras, cell phones, umbrellas and pelerines the gray wet. Still trying to take the single Instagram picture, which provides proof to everyone else that the trip was worthwhile.

The series draws, despite their color intensity, not a casual, cheerful image of Venice, but focuses on the frustration that all of us know too well.  

The expectation of  "going on vacation" is extreme and mostly inconsistent with reality.
