Overview

Steidl Collectors Books This new series from Steidl is dedicated to keeping in print previously published books by important artists like Lucinda Devlin, Karl Lagerfeld, Gerard Malanga and Massimo Vitali--and at an affordable price. From atop a homemade platform 12-to-15-feet high, Massimo Vitali observed and photographed his Italian compatriots on the beach, in the disco, at airports and in shopping malls. In the process he created razor-sharp, detailed photos that consciously borrow from genre painting of the 19th century. Vitali isolates concrete moments in anonymous clusters of people and directs the observer's gaze to diverse slices of reality. Again and again, individual characters and narrative moments evolve out of the coincidental meetings. In capturing and bringing together these fleeting images, Vitali simultaneously delivers sociological findings about the society in which he lives.

Editorial Reviews

Vince Aletti
Massimo Vitali, 56, a photojournalist turned movie cameraman, launched these paired photo projects in the wake of a 1994 national election that prompted him to question the sanity of his fellow Italians. While on a Tuscan beach vacation, he says he "made the decision to have a closer look at my compatriots," and the results are the richly descriptive leisure landscapes gathered here.
Sociology at its most seductive, Vitali's study of Italians at play may have been sparked by a moment of shocked skepticism, but it feels generous rather than judgmental...He may have set out to investigate the Italian citizenry, but he ended up with a privileged view of us all: gregarious, lost, foolish, expectant, all too human.
