certain VICTORY

Massimo Vitali

Just to remind us how glorious summer was,  here is some amazing beach scene photography by Massimo Vitali. His work reminds me of the movie "la dolce vita" someone stylized with a dream haze quality. 

His series of Italian beach panoramas began in the light of drastic political changes in Italy. Massimo started to observe his fellow countrymen very carefully. He depicted a "sanitized, complacent view of Italian normalities", at the same time revealing "the inner conditions and disturbances of normality: its cosmetic fakery, sexual innuendo, commodified leisure, deluded sense of affluence, and rigid conformism".
