Los Angeles based photographer Sarah Hadley’s 'Lost Venice' is both an alluring and haunting portrayal of that majestic city as distilled through her personal lens of loss and nostalgia. Hadley contemplates the paradoxes of Venice with evocative images that celebrate the magnificent architecture and its fragility.

Hadley’s unusual childhood and lengthy history with the city, coupled with the premature loss of her father who introduced her to Italy, have allowed her to channel Venice’s ethereal nature with subtle intensity. Her dream-like images of dark waters and shadowy passageways emanate longing and conjure a forgotten Venice.
