A photographic tour of Venice comes to Muriel Arnason library in September.

Venice: ‘City of Water’ photographic journey

Some call it the most romantic city in Europe, others the most historical.

Some call it the most romantic city in Europe, others the most historical. In The New York Times it has been described as “the most beautiful city built by man”. Either way, Venice is a captivating city to visit.

Venice is a city in northeastern Italy, sited on a group of 118 small islands separated by canals and linked by bridges. The buildings of Venice are constructed on closely spaced wood piles, which were imported from the mainland. Most of these piles are still intact after centuries of submersion. The foundations rest on the piles, and buildings of brick or stone sit above these footings. The piles penetrate a softer layer of sand and mud until they reach a much harder layer of compressed clay.

Join Langley photographer John Gordon, the winner of both provincial and national photography awards, for a photographic journey to this fabled city, at Muriel Arnason Library, Wednesday, Sept. 17, 7-8 p.m.

The program is free but registration is required. Please call 604-532-3590 or visit Muriel Arnason Library to reserve your seat.
