In the artist’s own words: “When visiting Venice you very quickly become aware of the fact that there is an enormous tourist population, and a very small group of local Venetians amongst them. I knew that to find the Venetian people I had to go off the beaten path, and get a little lost. I took this photograph after aimlessly wandering for two hours within the maze that is Venice, Italy. When I stumbled into the same path as this woman, performing the everyday task of walking her dog, she reminded me that there are indeed locals in this city, and that they are not so different from me as an American.”
