Massimo Vitali @ Bonni Benrubi Gallery, NYCJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 31 Jan 2012
Massimo Vitali's large scale photographs always grab our attention with their beautiful array of bright, sun-bleached hues. His beach scenes shot in Turkey, Greece and Italy present beautifully color coordinated bathers with their sun tanned flesh, umbrellas, towels, and bathing suits dotting the intersection between rock, sand, and sea. Vitali not only captures a fascinating and beautiful array of color, but the details within these myriad seascapes are equally seductive as you notice the many narratives that are layered within the overarching composition as each figure is experiencing the beach in their own corner of the frame. The work will be up only for a few more days at Bonni Benrubi Gallery in New York. So if get a chance, go and see these large scale prints in person, we're sure it'll be more gratifying than a computer screen.
