Michael Massaia photographs areas and objects that never extend too far from his front door. Illuminating the ordinary, isolation, and disconnection are themes frequently featured in his photographs. Massaia primarily works with large format, black and white film, utilizing highly modified proprietary analog and digital printing techniques. He is the sole craftsman from the instant the negative is exposed to the moment the final print is made. Born in New Jersey, 1978.
