"People often visit me and tell me how come there is no one in your paintings? I answer but there are people in my paintings, but they have all come to my side of the easel to see the splendour of the city."

Roger's gaze was captured by Greek-French photographer Nikos Aliagas during an art residence in Venice in 2022.

Nikos' lens traveled through the extraordinary everyday life of Venice, letting photography tell the stories of those who live and make these places come alive.

In 1992, Roger arrived in Venice for the first time to paint. The Franco-American developed a strong bond with the lagoon city and decided to move there permanently. Today, when he is not painting outdoors on the island of Murano, you can find Roger between Giudecca and Dorsoduro.

The photography exhibition Nikos Aliagas. Regards Vénitiens is open to the public in the ground floor spaces of Palazzo Vendramin Grimani, home of Fondazione dell'Albero d'Oro, until November 26, 2023.
