AM recently stopped by the agnès b. gallery boutique to catch their latest exhibition with esteemed Italian photographer Massimo Vitali. The opening reception allowed guests to peruse a new series of photographs taken in Italy, Turkey and Greece from 2009-2011. Making use of his signature style, Massimo took the photos from a high vantage point (4-5 meters) using large format film cameras to achieve his unique look at beach and tourist landscapes. The launch event was also a tandem book signing event in which Massimo attended to meet & greet his fans. There we also got a closer look at two great books: Natural Habitats and Landscape with Figures published by Steidl. Get your copies here at the agnès b. online store.

Closer look at the show after the jump.
