What people say about Timeless
The title “Timeless” is perfect. Many times my mind was questioning weather these images were made 200 years ago, or just yesterday. Are those lights powered by whale blubber or electricity? The lights streaks, from torches or led’s? I could simultaneously see people in the streets and corridors wearing attire from the 1600’s and fancy Prada just bought online.
I don't think I've ever had a collection of images like this ever transport me through time so powerfully. Thank you for that experience. The photographs are amazing. They somehow feel like portraits and landscapes. I strongly believe that portraits are given, not taken. Somehow, you were able to connect with this place and it opened up to you like an old friend, reveling secrets and hidden treasures.
This book is something I will treasure..for is aesthetics, its visual strength and beauty of course...and above all, the power it holds to be able to transport the viewer across time and space

"Timeless" is a magical, award winning work of fine art, worthy of a place in the art museums, libraries and private collections of the world. The thousands of hours spent in the making shine through, not only in the amazing and profoundly original pictures, but also in the printing, the paper, the binding and the presentation. It brings a totally new view to one of the most photographed cities in the world. Seminal!
The book is absolutely magnificent. Every single photograph is filled with mystery, where a very intimate level of light permeates it all. Turning the pages becomes a wonderful journey, filled with strong emotions. I really love it. The paper is particularly beautiful, and the overall quality of the book is of the highest standards. It is a splendid book and I am very proud of owning one. The fine print accompanying the book is simply outstanding, displaying an almost surrealistic perspective...I will have it framed soon and I cannot wait to hang it from our walls.
I had waited until Sunday to really enjoy this beautiful object with the calm and attention it deserves.
I already expected a wonderful book in terms of the quality of its photographs and its presentation, but to be sincere, it goes well beyond that...I simply cannot find the words, such is the level of beauty, poetry and subtlety of the book. Bravo.
Yesterday I received your book, wow… I don’t really want to call it simply a book, it is much more than that. Beautiful finishing as meticulous as I expected from a man of detail like you. It is more than perfect, it’s a jewel. Congratulations!
"Timeless" is marvelous in every respect. I wonder how you managed to portray this town devoid of people, in its basic simplicity. The printing quality is also astonishing and quite superior from any photobook I have. Congratulations for a very well-executed piece of work!
"Timeless" makes you wonder...
How is it possible to lose track of time in a city where the extensive remains are the tangible witnesses to the past?
This is the amazing algorithm that Rafael Rojas has superbly realized by playing with the light and his subtle choice of subjects and compositions.
From the first page, the book draws our gaze on the details of a ceiling with a clock in the center, referring to the time suspended. Smooth gradations of beautifully contrasting grays give us a 3D impression of the relief. The richness of the fine detail is impeccable and yet, the photographs appear soft and delicate.
The book as a whole is true to the mood and the atmosphere and never ceases to amaze us, surprise us.
This book depicts a city of Venice at rest and yet full of life! Elements that stand out against the fog, reflections, unusual places and details, traces of human activity that can only be guessed.
Rafael shows us a Venice like we have never seen!
The most beautiful Venice book I’ve ever seen! All of the photos are stunning and unique. In his book, Rafael manages to capture scenes with no people, making the book truly “Timeless”. He takes you back to the Venice of the past. My mind wanders as I enjoy each photograph. I keep thinking and imagining how life was in Venice hundreds of years ago. I can look at the book over and over again and thoroughly enjoy the experience every time. To top it off, the book’s presentation is elegant and worthy of the content.
