On a rainy and cloudy Monday morning, with a post-Paris Photo mood, I headed to the Somerset House to visit Real Venice. An exhibition organised by the charity Venice in Peril, in collaboration with Ivorypress, to raise funds for the restoration and protection of buildings and art works in Venice. The show, curated by Ivorypress founder, Elena Foster and her team premiered at San Giorgio Maggiore Abbey on the occasion of the Biennale di Venezia this year and will be on display in London until the 11th of December. Real Venice, and the accompanying catalogue, are part of the CPhoto Project: a programme that aims at supporting and promoting photography and contemporary art through publications, exhibitions and other related activities.
