)-- New book from experienced and widely published travel photographer, writer and videographer David C Phillips turns the beautiful city of Venice, Italy upside down, and shows the art and beauty that is Venice in the water through reflections. David C Phillips has found a new angle to portray this extraordinary and unique city that has been painted and photographed so very extensively over the centuries and is being photographed so actively every day. The images in "Reflections of Venice," taken collectively, represent a work of art about a city which is brim full with art and beauty and is itself a work of art. The fine art photo book goes well beyond travel photography and travel books about destinations, and enters the world of art, realistic, impressionistic, surreal and abstract.
"Reflections of Venice – Art and Beauty in the Water
" is a multimedia digital book made for iBooks. The book contains videos, interactive maps, a complete and easily accessible glossary, several slideshows and an audio clip. The photos look stunning on an iPad or a Mac, especially on a retina display. iBooks is a perfect platform for enjoying this book fully.
