About Massimo Conti

Massimo Conti
B. 1967 | Photographer from 1990

Conti has an amazing ability and mastery in the use of light and shadow as well as an excellent sensibility in the composition of the feminine figure.

His approach to the study of Grace, Softness, Sensuality, Simplicity and The Spirit as intertwined with Nature is pure passion.

He says that his primary source of inspiration is nature.
This statement comes at no surprise at all since in many of his anthropomorphic figures and fine art works we find different traces of nature: cliffs, stones, woods, shells and the sea are major elements that everything is composed with extreme rigor and care for details; perhaps his true art is simply in the placement of the models since they often become authentic, beautiful, exquisite living sculptures during the shooting session.

The singularity of his work is in the originality of his forms and it is interesting to note that, although we are 150 years beyond the birth of photography there are still artists able to create new shapes and new emotions.
