In 2019 I took a trip to Venice to photograph the famous Carnival of Venice masked festival that takes place annually in San Marco Square and surrounding area. For centuries, masked performers have taken to the square in dance and celebration of the carnival which ends with the start of Lent. I planned my trip towards the end of February knowing that the carnival would be in full swing, and I aimed to capture the beautiful masks and the colours of Venice to create an insight into the feeling and character of this unique festival.
