|About the Artist:
Born in Bari in 1983, Massimo left his family in 1997. Finding himself again in his hometown in 2006, after unsatisfactory studies in philosophy, found a camera and his interest in photography. This led him to take courses in many workshops with international photoeditors and multi award winning photographers.
His works have been shown widely all over the world, participating in many collective exhibitions and many photo festivals (such as Foto8 Summershow, Emergentes DST, BursaPhotoFest, Open Wound, AOPS at San Diego Museum, LaBiennale di Venezia, Terry O’Neill Tag Award exhibition, IPA best of show, Px3 exhibition, photo fairs and so on), winning many awards and honorable mention.
At the moment Massimo lives in the South of Italy, and has to face an impressive problem with his freedom and freedom of the press: with his recent works (investigative reportage about building speculator, and on the antifascist movement) “he has been awarded” with attacks, intimidation, anonymous phone calls, no commissioned works, and recently also a court investigation: he’s doing a good work.
