Photographs by Massimo Vitali.
Steidl, 2011. 200 pp., 76 color illustrations, 15x12".
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 volume Natural Habitats, comprises seventy photographs, spanning from 2004 to 2009 – also includes a “genealog - ical tree” of his photographs: 120 thumbnail images which make visual connections by color, composition and time.
