A personal collection of photos from the Venice Mask Carnival.

History of the Venice Carnival Masks (extracted from Luxe Adventure Traveler):

The Venice Carnival is a centuries old tradition and one of the world’s most famous carnivals. The Carnival of Venice also became our own tradition during the seven years that we called Italy home, masquerading each year in La Serenissima with the locals and tourists alike. The costumes, events and parties over the 10 days leading up to Fat Tuesday make Venice Carnival one of the biggest events in Italy, but it’s the masks – the quintessential feature – that makes the Carnival of Venice unique from Italy’s other famous carnivals.

The tradition of the mask started in the 13th century when Venetians would hold celebrations and parties from December 26th until the start of Lent and wear elaborate masks to conceal their identity. These parties were the only time when the lower and upper classes mingled together. Aristocrats and peasants, disguised by their masks, played out their fantasies together. They indulged in illicit activities like gambling, clandestine affairs, political assassination, and dancing and partying the night away.

these are amazing, Bobby. When did you go there? Did you have to ask these ladies ( I am assuming that these are all females ) to pose?
voted for sure.

Thank you KD! That's a loaded question! This is a collection from 4 different trips. These ladies (and men) will pose for anyone, but many of these images were taken at a private shoot at a preferred location e.g. from a gondola.

Nice Bobby!

I have always loved that city, and the masks. How did you get it so uncrowded?

Hello, and thank you, Steve!

Piazza San Marco is always busy - and especially so during the Mask Carnival. The trick is to go out early - like 6am - in winter. Even so, there will be a few photographers milling around. And if you don’t have the patience to wait until everyone has cleared the area in front of you, you can always clone them out!

Hey Robert, and thanks! These women, and men, are in La La Land during the Carnival. And shooting these guys are a lot of fun and can be very addictive!
