Venice Carnival Photography Prints Etsy Shop

Each year Venice hold their yearly carnival in February, it is well known for Venetian Masks and Costumes. When the carnival first started in 1162 the masks were more simple, today they are hand painted from natural feathers and gems. It has been tradition for many years and is one of the biggest and oldest festivals. I went to photograph Venice in 2011 and 2014 to photograph the carnival and really enjoyed it, there were so many beautiful costumes. One of the people I have got to know through the carnival is Patricia Juilland, she designs her own costumes and has made 47 so far.

Some of my images from the Venice Carnival are available to purchase as prints from my Etsy Shop www.etsy.com/shop/natashaballetta If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
