THE HEART OF CITIES BEATS DIFFERENTLY ACCORDING TO THE GAZE OF THOSE WHO WALK THROUGH IT
Portraits of Cities invites you to hear them beating through the heart of an artist. These rare moments are like postcards you collect.
Portraits of Cities ™ is a collection of books published by be-poles. The guest artist is offered a carte blanche to illustrate the city of his choice. Each Portraits of Towns is a unique journey guided by the singular look of an artist, recognized or emerging, who was chosen for the richness and sensitivity of his vocabulary.
In 2007, the be-poles ™ studio created this collection with a particular artistic demand, both on content and form: from the color of blankets to format, papers, white spaces, typography and finishes, all Details have been designed to best serve the image and its history.
For the first time, the be-poles graphic studio publishes, in the Portraits de Cilles collection, a series of photos from an order for the New York Times to photographer Massimo Vitali. Twice Massimo went to the heart of Rio de Janeiro. He gives us a portrait halfway between the report and the journey.
Massimo Vitali is an Italian photographer born in 1944 in Como in Lombardi.A graduate of the London College of Printing, he is now divided between Lucca in Tuscany and Berlin.
He works as a photojournalist.
It was in the 90s that will be dedicated to photography as a true means of artistic expression.
Particularly known for his series of Italian beaches, Massimo Vitali's photographs have dominant theme for the imaging of modern life and the fantasy of escape from social and economic restrictions.
