Massimo Vitali. Landscape with Figures
In the first volume of Landscape with Figures published in 2004, Massimo Vitali showed his entire oeuvre from the nineties, broadening the scope of his survey of beaches and discos to include skiing resorts and swimming pools from across the globe. Since 2007 Vitali has modified his perspective, shifting between an architectural background and a bizarre and fantastic mise en scène inspired by Romantic landscape paintings from 17th19th century. The book composed of seventy photographs, spanning from 2004 to 2009 also includes a genealogical tree of his photographs: 120 thumbnails images which make visual connections by color, composition and time.
