Photographer's Note

A lute player busking in Venice.

His 16-string lute is a modern example of an old design, the French Baroque lute or double-headed lute.

This type of neck, with a bent back head for the main strings and a straight extension for the bass strings (some of which are not fretted), was known as the French theorbe.
