For other recent series, Massaia has traversed his native New Jersey and New York City, capturing electronic billboards, 18-wheelers, rustic clapboard houses, and an empty Central Park, often during the early hours of the morning—which began as a consequence of his being afflicted with insomnia. Each series proves his unique approach to the photographic medium, yet certain signature traits emerge, like his expansive, infinite pools of black, the sharp articulation of his images, the richness of his grayscales in both silver and platinum, and the way his works seem to be lit from within. Ultimately, Massaia’s images are informed by the vintage processes that inspired his beginnings and the innovations that keep him going. Gramegna put it best when he remarked, “To me, the job of an artist is to fundamentally look at something and to render it in a way that we hadn’t seen before. I’ll never look at a tractor trailer truck, melting ice pop, billboard, or amusement park ride the same way again.” Massaia is certainly excelling at his job.
