I love photography. A lot of pieces speak to me, but I struggle to picture them on the walls of our house. I don’t know why; we have a pretty eclectic, antique/vintage, Americana thing going on. But there’s only one photograph in our place: it’s a black and white of a man standing in the middle of what is now Monument Avenue in Richmond, Virginia—when it was a tobacco field. I’ve often wanted to expand our collection—but something stops me. Like we’re too crusty to have cool photography on our walls.
I mean, until I found Massimo Vitali’s photography. Gorgeous, vibrant though washed-out, and beautiful in a way you wouldn’t expect to love—like listening to LCD Soundsystem. I can see it in any room in our home—perfectly.
Massimo Vitali takes photos of the Italian coast that I could just sit and stare at.
I’m also totally digging his Disco series; check out his portfolio for the full set. Beach ragers, toga parties, nightclubs, concerts—they fill me with energy.
In our next place, I want a large format version of the above over our couch. [And I don’t care what Rob says, I want this Anthropologie stunner to be the couch.]
