“I use photography like an instrument that allows me to extract elements from reality. I am not interested in establishment or reworking. I work only with reality in the simplest and most direct language possible. Moreover I am very interested in the places before I photograph them. I let my curiosity pull me to the border of voyeurism.” Massimo Vitali
Holiday and entertainment places, beaches, swimming-pools, ski slopes, discos: these are the result of an artist´s vision which adopts of a raised point of view, this, in turn, produces detachment from the chosen subjects, a distant but absolutely detailed framing: because Massimo Vitali is first of all a photographer.
This books gathers, for the first time, articulated theoretical reflections about Vitali´s poetic and images whose possible readings are as radiant and clear as they are complex.
