Massimo Bietti 's photography enters the observer's heart thanks to its documentary power, with a power of figuration that surpasses that of representation. With a series of contemporary art photographs, Bietti gives life to a project, Through the eyes, which fits into the vein of Kevin Carter and Steve McCurry. It is a project built along a journey through customs, everyday life and life, carried out by Massimo in over ten years. The common denominator of this project are the looks, which become the means to "feel with".
Bietti, in the course of his pilgrimages around the planet, does not limit himself to documentary photography, but, in the words of Rolan Barthes, seeks the "punctum", leading the observer to experience the instant, "hic et nunc". The noema, the nucleus of photography is “there has been”, Bietti highlights the fact that it is not a mere mold of the photograph, that it is not a copy of the real, but an emanation of the real.
Massimo Bietti 's photography never gives us the world as it is, but a cut, a moment, a position that takes us to the moment of the shot: each photograph is like news and is cut to shape reality, in -to form.
