The photographs are taken on the Lido beach in Venice, which is divided into a small public and a large private section. In the private section reserved to the guests of luxury hotels and private bathing establishments, only a strip of five meters from the shore is free for the public to pass. Whereas the public section is crowded with people during the hot season, the private section results almost empty, thus showing a modern social class distinction similar to that of past centuries, which only apparently has been overcome.
