Sarah Quill has contributed more than 900 images of Venetian architecture to the Artstor Digital Library. The selection in Artstor reflects Quill’s research as she explored the historic architecture of the city and some outlying islands, both iconic sites and quiet corners, in grand scale and minute sculptural detail.
 
Sarah Quill, based in Venice and London, is a photographer, teacher, and scholar, who has spent the past 40 years photographing the built environment and civic life of Venice, amassing a comprehensive archive.
