Massimo Vitali: Leporello 2020
29 April 2022 to 22 May 2022
Massimo Vitali, one of the most eminent living Italian photographers, is best known for his large-scale colour images of beaches and mass leisure events. Vitali has never been drawn to emptiness, and deserted cities hold little interest for him. But following the European spring lockdown of 2020, as soon as it was possible to leave the house in Italy and travel outside one’s own town, people began to return to the beaches. And Vitali was there, ready to capture the Italians during their moments of relaxation and leisure, as if to ask himself if they had really changed.
This exhibition is a collaboration between the Italian Institute of Culture and Monash Gallery of Art and will be shown in the CBD during PHOTO 2022.
