Massimo Vitali

“The inner conditions and disturbances of normality: its cosmetic fakery, sexual innuendo, commodified leisure, deluded sense of affluence and rigid conformism “


Massimo Vitali is a photographer, born in Como, Italy in 1944. Vitali studied photography in London; he first worked as a photojournalist in the 1970s and then worked later as a movie camera operator. His more recent work is fine art photography

For many of his works, Vitali stands on a podium four or five meters high, and uses large-format film cameras to capture high resolution details over a broad expanse in locations such as beaches.
