For hundreds of years Venice was at the merchant and cultural crossroads of the civilized world. Bill Young’s Venice, Fading Memories images capture the essence of this unique city. These classic black and white prints evoke the fading of memory for many visitors. Colours disappear and only the shadows and vague forms witnessed early on foggy mornings remain. Five of these images received a Lucie Award in 2005 (http://photoawards.com/05/contests/2005winners. asp).
