Born in Como, Italy, in 1944, Massimo Vitali arrived on the art scene relatively late. After stints as a photojournalist and film cameraman, he finally acquired international renown in the 1990s for his large-scale photographs of Italian beaches and other public spaces showing anonymous people during their leisure time. Vitali's works have been compared to a contemporary version of landscape paintings, evocatively reinterpreted through photography.
