Photographer Massimo Vitali on Swapping Blissful Bathers for Outdoor Furniture


Massimo Vitali is best known for captivating, large-scale scenes of beaches that capture people in moments of blissful leisure. Vitali’s career began as a photojournalist working across Europe, but an evolving understanding of photography’s limitations in realism led him towards cinematography, before returning to ‘photography as a means for artistic research’.


For Wallpaper’s May 2022 issue, the iconic Italian photographer swapped bathers for outdoor furniture in an epic shoot on the rocky sandstone cliffs of Le Vaschette in Italy.
