Venezia -Rio del Ghetto( Double Vision) - 2009
Made by Angelo Aldo Filippin
Negli anni ’80, quasi 30 anni fa iniziai una serie di immagini composta da due fotogrammi. La chiamai allora “Doppio Click” in quanto era proprio formata da 2 scatti diversi. Gli scatti dovevano essere complementari, cioe integrativi uno dell’altro. Dovevano suggerire un contenuto estetico o sociale e a tale funzione dovevano concorrere entrambi. Molti, non tutti, di questi Doppi Scatti si possono osservare nel mio sito Flickr nel set che ha lo stesso nome. Era un modo per evadere dalla solita visione singola senza dover presentare una serie o un portfolio dedicato ad un luogo, persona o avvenimento. Allora quando presentai questi lavori, nei Circoli, nelle Mostre e fra i Fotografi, si creò subito una divisione netta fra i Favorevoli e i Contrari. Fra quelli che erano assolutamente entusiasti e chi affermava che era una “boiata pazzesca”. Non si discuteva sul contenuto, sulla composizione o sul messaggio della Doppia Immagine ma solo sulla presentazione. Poi nel tempo questi lavori furono chiamati con molti nomi: Dittici, Diptici, Double Vision ecc ecc. e altri si cimentarono nell’esperienza. Fin dal mio ingresso di un anno fà, proprio Flickr inconsciamente mi suggerì l’idea di riprendere questo lavoro: cioè la funzione di inserire una nota all’interno di una fotografia. Quanti particolari degni di un’altra immagine ci sfuggono quando scattiamo una fotografia? Quante altre potenziali immagini di pregio possono esserci e coesistere all’interno di un altro click? Queste mie nuove doppie immagini saranno formate dallo scatto originale e da un suo particolare, ai quali sarà data la stessa rilevanza. Favorevoli o Contrari ?? In the 80s, almost 30 years ago began a series of images consisting of two frames. I called then Double Click because it was just made up of 2 different shots. The shots were to be complementary, integrative each other. They were to suggest an aesthetic or social content, and this function should contribute both. Many, not all, of these double click you can see in my Flickr site in the set that has the same name. It was a way to escape from the usual single view without having to make a series or a portfolio dedicated to a place, person or event. Then when I presented this work, clubs, exhibitions and one of the photographers, he immediately created a sharp division between those for and against. Among those who were absolutely thrilled and are saying that it was a horrible thing. Did not discuss the content, composition or the message of the double images but only on presentation. Over time these works were called by many names: Diptychs, Díptico, Double Vision, etc. etc.. and others will be challenged in the experience. Since my entry a year ago, just Flickr unconsciously he suggested the idea of reviving this work: ie the function to insert a note inside a photograph. How many details worthy of another image elude us when you shoot a photo? How many more pictures of potential value may exist and coexist within another click? These will be my new double images formed from the original shot and a detail, which will be given the same relevance. Favorable or against? View large
Campo Ghetto Nuovo
Made by dkonn
Two frame panorama.. L|B The original and the only remaining area officialy called Jewish Ghetto in the world. The world g(h)eto in Venetian means foundry. In 1516 Venetian Republic designated the area of old foundries for the Jewish population to live and worship in. The area was completely surronded by the canals with only two gated bridges connecting it to the rest of the city. The residents were not allowed to leave the ghetto during the night hours. Since the area was small for the growing population of Jews, the buildings here are taller than typical residential buildings in Venice and synagogues are located on the upper floors. In 1797 Napoleon troops tore open the ghetto gates and since then Jews were allowed to live elswhere in the city. Today Venice has a Jewish population of about 500 people, only 30 of them live in the former ghetto. The ghetto houses all of the city’s major Jewish institutions: two functioning synagogues, the Jewish museum, a yeshiva, a kosher restaurant, a bakery and several Judaica shops.

If you knew that love can break your heart When you're down so low you cannot fall Would you change? Would you change? How bad, how good does it need to get? How many losses? How much regret? What chain reaction would cause an effect? Makes you turn around, Makes you try to explain, Makes you forgive and forget, Makes you change? Makes you change? If you knew that you would be alone, Knowing right, being wrong, Would you change? Would you change? Wonder which changes are waiting there in the blue bag. Wonder about many people's change bags...wonder about mine. www.youtube.com/watch?v=196a3M9CbUA

The first Ghetto in the World was here in Venice. The word Ghetto was created here and comes from the word Geto, which means Neighborhood (loose translation) and it eventually became Ghetto. Although we associate the word with a bad area, that was not the meaning of the original. The Jewish Geto is a small area and a little different than the rest of Venice. Most of the people were murdered during the war. In the Piazza in the Geto, there are 8 sculptures to commemorate the Holocaust victims. There are several Synagouges and a museum, but none allow pictures inside. In one Synagouge, there is a replica of the Ark of the Covenant, a dramatic re-creation.
Ghetto Nouvo - Scuola Grande Tedesca
Made by dkonn
One of the five synagogues in the Venetian Ghetto - Scuola Tedesca was founded by the Ashkenazi Jews who moved to Venice from Germany. It occupies the top two floors of an ordinary looking building (on the right side of the photo) and recognizable only by the five big windows. Built in 1528, the Scuola Grande Tedesca is the oldest of the three synagogues in Campo Ghetto Nuovo and among the oldest surviving synagogues in Europe.

Feeling in a shadowy kinda mood today. This was taken in the Jewish Ghetto (Ghetto Nuovo). These two old ladies where standing bemused outside this block of flats, clearly debating if this was indeed their final destination. I really love how the wide anlge stretches those already lengthening shadows (like sticky goo) and emphasises that fading and gorgeous evening light..

14.4.2010: doorway over one of the old scuole or synagogues in the Jewish ghetto in Venice. Although there's probably some correspondence between the Venetian use of scuola and the Yiddish schul for synagogue, Venetian synagogues, like the Venetial Catholic scuole or confraternities also functioned as centres of charity, as well as instruction and worship.
Living the life
Made by Marco Dian
Jewish Ghetto Venice This photo tells me about life. All those clothes hanging in the air remind me the life of early '900, something like a past lost forever. I tried a conversion in black & white, but I think that it looses a lot. There are such beautiful colors in here! This one, like the previous, was shot with the Nifty-Fifty (50mm f/1.8).

Jewish ghetto in Venice Italy
Made by les abeyta
This little boy and his father were partaking in the ritual of learning to ride the bike in the Jewish ghetto of Venice. It was interesting to see in this little square a tiny building (watch station) of police for this neighborhood that was full of families.

the book is in the grounds of the World Health Organisation, and is meant to represent world peace. I think the letters are meant to have tumbled from the page, though I'm not so sure the page is meant to have been smashed open at the far end, too.

Questa è la prima foto caricata con l'account flickr pro, e la dedico alla mia cuginastra Sara, che sa bene che avrei potuto essere mooolto più cattivo nello scegliere la foto giusta. Chiunque voglia sue foto compromettenti mi contatti!!!
Italy - the Jewish ghetto Venice
Made by George_Reader
The first European ghetto created by the Republic of Venice in 1516. Home to thousands of Jews from the forced relocation in 1516 until Napolean occupied the city in 1797, this tiny island occupies only a few acres in the lagoon city.

The Rio Misericordia sounded so good I couldn't not take photographs all the way along it, on the day I decided to walk from one side of the island to the other.
