Massimo Listri. Photographic Architecture

The exhibition presents a selection of photographs by artist Massimo Listri, which include his iconic prospects of baroque palaces, the neoclassical interiors and Renaissance libraries.
The photographer is based in Florence, and is fascinated how his architectural subject matter allows him to control the composition of his image.
For many years he has photographed classicism devoid of people. More than a simple record of architecture, through his lens Listri rediscovers historical spaces and invites us to examine them afresh.
