Massimilano Orazi discussed his photographs with FUA students.

By Christine Buckley

The students in Gallery and Exhibition Curating Experiential Learning course met with the current artist featured at Ganzo, Massimilano Orazi, to get a better understanding of his artwork. Orazi told the students that the photographs represent the bare minimal of human presents and only the essentials. When he captures the photos, there is nothing, only him and the camera. There is no flash, no color and no physical changes in the scenery made by the artist.

Gallery students Caryn Byllott and Skyler Simpson, and communication student Morgan O’Reilly interviews Orazi at Ganzo.

Orazi is a self-taught photographer who uses his knowledge of architecture to inspire his artwork. He has a Masters in Architecture with skills focusing on the sciences. He was 16 years old when he decided to go into art after a conversation with a friend of his brother’s. The two had opposing views of beauty and Orazi believed that his own opinion was the correct one.
