Venice: Carnival and Campaigning (March 1990)
When I wasn’t attracting the attention of other tourists posing as a Dottore della Peste, I was stalking the other masks with my own camera. The snapshot of Ilona „la cicciolina“ Staller was taken on another occasion three years before, when I caught her campaigning for Italy’s Partito Radicale – she won a seat in the parliamentary elections later that year. The only digital photograph in this series is that of the musicians playing in front of the Quadri, taken in May 2001. The cameras used were a Pentax ME Super (1987), Pentax Z-50p (1990), and Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F505 (2001).
