Beautiful photography of Venice and highly informative posts, let you discover and experience this city in a uniquely different way.


“Images of Venice” by Ian Coulling FRPS

Images and illustrated posts combine to take you beyond the usual rather superficial approach of most “tourist orientated” websites, picture agencies and photo-sharing sites; towards the very soul of this aquatic city.

“Images of Venice” lets you see and experience all the elements, colour, texture and detail that characterise this historic city, as well giving you a better understanding and appreciation of its history and rich cultural heritage.

Currently, 52 themed Galleries containing over 900 exhibition quality images, together with 94 highly informative and illustrated posts; combine to make this a unique non-commercial “go-to” resource, for lovers of Venice and fine photography.

Ian Coulling is a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society (, awarded in 1985 for his contribution to the field of Pictorial Photography and is proud to be associated with the world’s most prestigious photographic society; founded in 1853 and granted a Royal Charter in 2004.

With an impassioned eye and creative sensitivity, Ian Coulling offers a personal vision of this unique place; revealing hidden and often transient details frequently overlooked by visitors and image makers. The Art of Photography is not only to document, but to offer both experience and sensation. To him, this unique historic city is the most beautiful and interesting place in the world. A jewel in the crown of Italy. One of unsurpassable beauty tinged with picturesque decay – giving a romantic ambience so loved by travellers, writers, poets and artists, over the centuries. ­ ­­Despite all its problems Venice is still is a living and vibrant city, coming to terms with and adapting to the 21st Century.

Beautiful photography of Venice and highly informative posts

April 2021. I have now completed more than 3/4 of a major new series of posts –” Islands of the Lagoon”(15 finished), that will cover the smaller islands of historical importance and those that are still inhabited (other than those usually associated with the city of Venice itself). Together with my post “The Venetian Lagoon and its Ecosystem”, I hope they will give you a good introduction and understanding of the history, culture and ecology of this fascinating area.
