Artist of the moment….Photographer Massimo Vitali

Here is a fantastic photographer to review on these beginning days of warmer temps! Massimo Vitali is a world renown Italian photographer that was born in Como, Italy in the year 1944. Vitali captures groups and very large groups of people at leisure, many times large masses of people at the beach or some other large body of water. To get his somewhat birds eye view, he shoots his images from a platform that varies from 12 to 15 feet above the ground.

Price range information: Total price range is $2,000 to $90,000. A fair amount of work is available in the $3,000 to $10,000 range.

For his collegiate education he studied in London College of Printing. After college he worked a photo journalist and a camera operator.

A brief interview with the Italian Master.

Here we visit a show from 2011 and 2012.

When it comes to painting the beach and its leisure crowd without a doubt my favorite artist is Hilo Chen. A great artist who paints wonderful flesh tones. Below is an example of Chen’s photo realist style.
