Biography

Massimo Bersanetti, eclectic photographer enamored with still life has been profoundly interested in the photography of the object and image, the subject (the human form, portraits, sceneries, still life, jewelry, clothes, wine bottles, books, etc) and the pretext to construct the image, solidly supported by the presented figure and the volume of its form. The characteristics of his work are vivacity, luminosity and solidity in composition, which result in a photography constructed like an object, like a surface on which the author represents a silent world, a cocoon like environment by reorganizing volumes, signs and colors. His pictures are beautiful to observe, to sense the magic of the photographer’s click, the instant of light, and the sense of the reflection of the object in the observer’s eyes.

For Bersanetti, to photograph means to renew the wonders and admiration of the world, evoked by objects, architecture and sceneries; visual sensations that recall a forever present history, like his representations of cities, of medieval villages of the North of France, one of the author’s favorites. His sceneries lie between reality and a souvenir of a place that seems real but emanates a metaphysical aura; for example, his photography of a landscape that cannot be placed in any specific geographic location, or time yet still has a very strong emotional impact.

Regarding Bersanetti’s photography that incorporates the human form, different parts of it, and portraits as its main subject, the author uses his photography as a mean of relating to people, by investigating and unmasking the veils surrounding his objects.
