Each day, for the briefest moment, there is a certain slant of light skimming the surface of Venice’s lagoon. The result is a peculiar lens effect, drawing light within the water’s body, igniting the canal’s deepest recesses. Fluid arrests this moment of transfiguration: a ripple of light, emanating from within otherwise calm waters.
