Opening: Wed, 8 November 2006, 7 p.m.

The artist will be present

In the focus of Massimo Vitaliís artistic interest stands the social ongoing at places of leisure and consumerism. Till the shoot he dwells for a while on a platform of 4 to 5 metres high so that the mugged people look as if they are unaware of the presence of the camera. On the brink of voyeurism his photos show reality without any beautification by a revision. In its simple and straight way of representation the viewer is confronted with crowded beaches, densely populated discos, shopping centres, leisure parks and supermarkets on enormous photos. They are unmistakable, detailed event-photos which show the influences of his long lasting work as a photographer as well as they bear resemblances to the history painting.
