“San Giacomo di Rialto”
By Alejandro Merizalde
“Canaletto was known for his depictions of Venice, Italy,” says Merizalde. “He covered every angle of the city in his canvases. The original painting is of the church of San Giacomo di Rialto and the Rialto Market on the right. My photograph, done in the same spot, but at a slightly lower vantage point, shows what the area currently looks like. It was taken last year.”
