    From the intro of a busy canal at night Davip Phillips draws us into his discovery: the reflections of Venice reveal, conceal and delight with surprises. Facades dissolve into fierce turbulations of color. Brightly painted poles become ribbons of Murano glass. An gondolier’s oar stabbing thru spirals of silver and black. Images that evoke Impressionist and Surrealist paintings. A couple of favorites: a gondolier navigating a sea of stars chairs perched like birds on their reflections an enchanted portico in San Marco during aqua alta There are many guide books of Venice full of sights; this book guides us to seeing her anew. bonus for reference maps of Venice and her districts.

He notices things most of us miss! This is a book you will revisit time and time again, and constantly see something new.

    Reflections of Venice is an astonishing rendition of the Venitian atmosphere. The water surfaces with their reflections have been waiting for more than a millenium to be discovered in this highly artistic work. It delivers so many viewpoints, both surprising and highly esthetic, that I wonder if I have ever really seen the city in all its aspects. The images transcend the material world. Just as one sees a really good painting and the idea of paint disappears, so fades rapidly in this gem the idea that one looks at a photograph. The impact of art can be said to give a reflection of the material universe as seen with the eyes and in an effort to add a spiritual quality to it. Adding this powerful element of creative and esthetic capturing by means of a simple viewpoint is achieved in this work of art.

    Rarely has a book ever offered such a wonderful travel escape as “Reflections of Venice.” I find myself returning again and again to enjoy the dance of the light on the water and the peaceful imagery that David has captured of Venice. The videos are a wonderful touch! If you love Venice or Italy or just incredible photography, this is the book for you!

    This is a marvellous book. It is a completely original idea - literally, beautiful photos of magnificent reflections in water of sights and scenes of Venice, Italy. Not just are viewing the works or one of the world's best photographers but just like his other books in the iTunes store, this one too is breathtakingly inspiring. I have, since writing this review above of the old version, read the new and updated 2018 version of this book. It is now even more pleasurable. A lot more pleasurable. It comes across as though the author is speaking straight to me! The photos are spectacular. The colors are quite remarkable. There’s a new magic this time where the author explains what to look for. I’m sure that had he not done so I would have missed several rather meaningful aspects and qualities of Venice and this artwork. The book now is very interactive and has a lot of videos which really make the scenes come to life. The glossary and illustrations are very helpful. Furthermore this book is a phenomenal guide to Venice, a must for anyone to read from cover to cover before going to Venice as you will get so much more out of your trip than otherwise, and I’ve already been there twice, but now wish I’d read the book before having gone!

    David Phillips does a marvelous job at bringing modern day Venice to life, he does so with clarity and precision without sacrificing the unique color and radiance of the city. Anybody who has been will immediately recognize the sights, sounds and sensation of the city, while anyone who has not will find no better portrayal of such a rich and complex place. Definitely recommend!

    This is the most affordable trip to Venice without ever leaving your home, office or country. This is visual splendor capturing “the other world” of reflection that’s so integral to Venice, and its dance with water, surfaces, light and reflection. Hats off to David Phillips for capturing these moments in time so beautifully. A true visual treat.
