Venice Beach

A tribute to Venice in art and verse…

“Heart & Soul” is quite possibly the most comprehensive high-end art book ever assimilated about the 100-year history of Venice, California.  Capturing the infamous Venice Beach Boardwalk through photography and story, this coffee table-style book features the 30-year history of the supremely talented street performers who entertain millions each year, making Venice Beach the second largest tourist attraction in southern California!

Venice wouldn’t be the most-famous beach in the world without the efforts of the legendary boardwalk street performers.  For over three decades these entertainers have worked day-in and day-out to ensure Venice continues to be a  symbol of true freedom and expression.  “Heart & Soul” features 12 of the boardwalk’s most-influential performers, each depicted in masterful personal portraits and amazing show shots! 

Personal stories:  From the heart and soul…

Each performer agreed to reveal the personal accounts of the journey that led them to the shores of Venice Beach.   Through amazing and sometimes bizarre circumstances, each true-life story reveals trials and tribulations that have never been expressed in written word.  Without their support, this book would not have been possible.  Thus, the title was never in question, as ‘Heart & Soul’ is what Venice means to the few that know it so well.
