In Moleca
2019 - ongoing.

‘In Moleca’ documents the ‘Acqua Alta’ (high-water) which transpires annually in Venice, Italy.

This tidal activity is a natural occurrence, however in recent decades has been exacerbated by the effects of human activity.
Mass-tourism, global warming, urban expansion and industrialisation are damaging factors which have influenced the deterioration of the Venetian lagoon, leading to the increasing tide and subsidence of the ‘floating city’. 




Exploring issues caused by human intervention; this series highlights the tender balance between urban inhabitants and the environment.

In Moleca questions how cities like Venice can harmonise this interdependent relationship and adapt to the age of the Anthropocene in an increasingly globalised world.
