Massimo Listri travels his native Italy and the world with his camera, photographing grand interior spaces both iconic and unexpected. His large-scale color prints invite viewers into the settings he frames; these include ancient castles, villas, palaces, gardens, libraries, convents, monasteries, and universities. He has taken viewers into the ornate hallways of Versailles, as well as the treasure-laden galleries of the Vatican museums. From Brazil, he brought back images taken at art museums, a cathedral, and a theater designed by Oscar Niemeyer, among many other architecturally iconic sites. Though Listri focuses on the grand, he has also homed in on details in an expressive series of closely framed photographs of sculpted faces. Captured frontally or in profile, these carved faces range from grotesque to idealized and serve to celebrate the power of the artist’s hand.
