“Selective Color Photos by Paul Williams. When you visit Burano Island in the Lagoon of Venice, You are dumbfounded by the intensity of colour the houses have been painted. The chaotic clashing of vibrant colours suggest that the inhabitants of Burano must be colour blind. This is a joyful place. It is like a kindergarten for adults. Even on a dull day the bright colours of Burano brings a smile to the most hardened of hearts. I hope you enjoy my photos of Burano” Paul Williams

Visitors to Burano can be forgiven for believing that the inhabitants of Burano Island must be colour blind! Every canal on the small Venetian Lagoon island is lined with simple houses painted in bright clashing colours that reflect in the muddy waters of the canals in a dazzling riot of colour. There can be few other places where primary colours are used as a house decoration with such abandon. Uncoordinated and garish, the effect can only bring a smile to even the most jaded travellers face.
The buildings of Burano may be less sophisticated than the famous architecture of its neighbouring and better known main Island of Venice, but the sense of joy its little coloured houses create make Burano a must to visit. Unlike St Mark’s square it is possible to wonder around Burano in near solitude. The Vaporetto which plies its way to Burano reaches it via the Venice cemetery Island and the famous Glass blowing Island of Murano. The journey across the lagoon makes the trip worth while in itself, but nothing can prepare travellers for the explosive colours of Burano.
‘Burano’ is a series of fine art photography showing art photos of the colourful houses of the venetian island of Burano by award winning photographer Paul Williams. This series of fine art pictures uses selective colour to isolate the important parts of the art photograph. This technique is a cross between blace & white & colour photography. Paul Williams has been colouring photographs for many years so selective colour is an extension of hand colouring black & white prints.
