Insulae is a series of portraits of young Venetians that I produced during a Landscape Stories workshop with the photographer, Simon Roberts.

It was something of an experiment I guess and I'd like to carry it forward although I'm not yet sure how. The fact is that there are not many young Venetians left in Venice.. at least those that were born in Venice. If you're not working in the tourist industry then the opportunities for working there are limited so many tend to move away. My idea was to isolate them from the city in a way that they are there but also not there. I'm not sure that it works yet but I'll keep trying.
