About

Split toned and hand-tinted gelatin silver print, printed by artist, with 8-ply over-mat and mounted to archival, 8-ply museum board Signed and numbered, recto 26 x 32 inches, overall mat size 22 x 28 inches, paper size (Edition of 20) 38 x 48 inches, overall mat size 30 x 40 inches, paper size (Edition of 10) 53 x 63 inches, overall mat size 43 x 53 inches, paper size (Edition of 3) This artwork is offered by ClampArt, located in New York City. Michael Massaia writes: “Over the past sixteen years I’ve spent the majority of my late nights and early mornings in hotel lobbies throughout Manhattan. Throughout those sleepless nights I was always taken by how that environment seemed to exist in a constant – no past, no present, no future – state. When the guests retired, I was left alone to experience the intimate nature of these places. This series documents those long nights. "The majority of these images were taken in the Waldorf Astoria in New York City, which has subsequently been sold, and closed to make way for condominiums. It will never be the way it was….” Michael Massaia is a fine art photographer and printmaker who has spent the past ten years documenting areas and objects that never extend too far from his front door. Isolation, disconnection, and an attempt to put a spotlight on the ordinary are the constants in all of his work. He focuses primarily on large format black-and-white film, utilizing a variety of highly modified proprietary analog and digital printing techniques. Massaia works alone and is the sole craftsman from the instant the negative is exposed to the moment the final print is made.
