ABOUT Massimo Cristaldi
Massimo Cristaldi was born in Catania (Italy) in 1970. After receiving a degree in Geology, he began managing international research projects. Art is the environment he grew up in and photography is the way he set his creative side free. The driving concern of his work is focused on traces that man and time carve over nature and things, effects and signs on “what remains”. He was awarded in many international photography competitions such as the International Photography Awards, the B&W Spider Awards, the Photography Masters Cup, the Travel Photographers Of the Year and the Prix de Photographie de Paris. Massimo has exposed in Europe, US, Canada and Brazil, in solo and group shows and at photography festivals. He is represented by galleries in Belgium, France and Italy. He lives and works both in Catania and Rome. Massimo’s photographs are part of the permanent collection of the George Eastman House, International museum of photography and Film in Rochester, NY (USA). Contact
