Scala dei Turchi (#3850), 2009. This 72 x 86-inch image is one of eight large-scale color photographs c-prints included in Massimo Vitali’s upcoming exhibition at M +B in Los Angeles, California. Internationally respected for his depictions of masses at play in various beach scenes, ski locations and tourist destinations, Vitali has garnered praise since he began photographing in this signature style in 1994. His subjects, often sunbathers and tourists, forget about his presence, as he waits for moments such as the one shown here while perched 20 feet in the air on a platform. The exhibition opens September 11, 2010 and runs through October 16, 2010. Concurrent with the exhibition is the release of Vitali’s third monograph published by Steidl titled Landscapes with Figures 2.
