Bonni Benrubi Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new work by Massimo Vitali, "LANDSCAPE with FIGURES 2." The exhibition will present recent photographs from Italy, Turkey and Croatia. From a vantage point high above a scene, Vitali’s large-scale color images capture a surreal, sometimes voyeuristic view of the landscape that is often inhabited by carefree figures, such as sunbathers on a beach or tourists on holiday. His vistas allow the viewer to reflect on the rituals of modern leisure as captured by his large format camera. Oblivious to his presence, the people in Vitali’s images offer a wealth and depth of narrative action, allowing the viewer to discover reality in unexpected ways. His panoramic view of an amphitheatre in ruins in Turkey, while almost devoid of modern-day tourists, evokes the temporal nature of human existence, evidence of leisure rites of times past. Massimo Vitali began his career as a photojournalist and in 1994 went on to pursue his own vision. His work is represented in major public and private collections around the world and has been the subject of several monographs and museum retrospectives. This is his fourth solo exhibition at Bonni Benrubi Gallery.(read less)
