Paolo Ventura: Venezia

If you're in NY, I think you should go to see this diorama installation. I would. Good dioramas are fascinating.

His precision dioramas of beautifully dreary, eerily quiet Venetian locales set in the 1930s - somewhat surreal yet nonetheless quite real - are the basis for his exquisite large-scale photographic prints. His craft is impeccable. But there is much more to be felt in these stunning works. – (via Imprint Magazine)

His photographs are Eire, yet you almost cant look away.
