About the Exhibition:
Over 25 black and white photos by Massimiliano Orazi were shown to the public for the first time at this photo exhibition showcasing suggestive images taken from 2002 to 2015. Orazi was excited to reveal the striking quality of landscapes throughout Italy, including images from the streets of Venice to the coast of Comacchio. Orazi’s intentional compositions suggest a human presence but rarely reveal an explicit figure. He focuses on linear elements in nature using a minimal amount of technical equipment.
Massimiliano Orazi was born in Fermo, central Italy, in 1968 and became interested in photography at age 16. While he initially worked with film photography, Orazi has since shifted to digital processes. He is a self-taught photographer, but received a Masters degree in Architecture from the University of Florence. Orazi is currently living in Florence as a freelance teacher of photography, engineering, and science. He has been living in different parts of Italy and remains passionate about photography and writing.
