Photographer's Note

Burano is a small cluster of islands near the northern end of the Venetian Lagoon. It was settled by the Romans and by the 6h century was administered from nearby Torcello, where refugees from the mainland first set up permanent stone structures in the safety of the lagoon. Later, Burano would become known for its lacework, which was exported from Venice all across Europe. Today it’s known for its narrow streets and canals lined by many colorful buildings. It’s about a 40 minute water bus ride from the Fondamente Nova in Venice to Burano.
