Dionisio Gonzales takes on the role of both photographer and architect by digitally urbanizing sites that have been observed. He asks questions in his series of ‘Venice’, ‘Halong’, ‘Dauphin Island’ regarding whether or not people who lost their living space for various reasons and creates a new utopia. The places selected are those which have a have been constructed on water or have experienced natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions and tropical storms. Today, these locations have experienced redevelopment of holiday resorts and negative effects of tourism. Especially in the case of Venice, the city received 20 million tourists each year, and original residents of Venice have been leaving the city.
