In Steidl’s ongoing project to catalogue the life’s work of this Italian master of the photographic medium, this slipcased edition brings together the two volumes which encompass all Massimo Vitali’s images to create a collector’s edition.
Volume I is the second edition of Landscape with Figures, the award winning book first published in 2004. Published in a marginally smaller format than the original, the production of this new edition utilises new scans to take advantage of the significant technical developments since the first edition was printed.
Volume II is a copy of the first edition of the recently published Natural Habitats.
The first 1,000 copies of this limited, slipcased edition include a giant poster which maps the family tree of Vitali’s works, a visual geneology which is also the history of the artist’s work.
