Photographer, filmmaker, photojournalist Massimo Vitali has specialized in taking long shots of crowd scenes on beaches and ski slopes, in swimming pools and discos. His large-scale images reflect bites of reality where the subjects go about their business on several planes. The anonymous people enjoying leisure activities against a variety of landscapes are usually photographed from platforms or ladders upon which Vitali is perched. The birds-eye view provides us with a panorama of people who become individuals, as opposed to scenery, as the eye explores further in a 'Where's Waldo?' sort of way.
