The Pienovuoto (Fullempty) project strives to exalt the eye of a photographer who knows how to capture the unstable but recurring balance between density and absence, between crowds and solitude, between crowded cities and beaches and agreeable places where the human presence is reduced to a minimum.
Italian beaches, which seem sculpted in crystal, crowded with people on holiday and absolutely clear landscapes, where people find a different dimension and a primordial relationship with nature. Aesthetically speaking, Massimo Vitali’s work draws on the history of art and not just that of photography. Italian by birth and Anglo-Saxon by training, he has an international vision and is interested in the evolution of avant-garde research at the turn of the last century and the current one. In this photography, the artist appears to be inclined not to leave traces of moments connected to identifiable historical events.
