Willy Vecchiato – Burano ii

Burano is an island in the venetian lagoon, closed to Venice.
The peculiarity of Burano is the colours: there are many small brightly painted house.
The colours of the houses follow a specific system originating from the golden age of its development; if someone wishes to paint their home, one must send a request to the government, who will respond by making notice of the certain colours permitted for that lot.
My aim is bring out a different point of view of this colorful place with an unusual black and white.
Ted Grant sayd: ‘When you photograph people in color you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph in B&W, you photograph their souls!
I tried to capture the soul of Burano.
