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. Michael Massaia started documenting Central Park in 2007 as way of dealing with sleeplessness. He would commonly take long walks at night, and the park always seemed to be calling him in. He set out to document the park at its most vacant, isolating, and at times most haunting moments. The park appears to go through a period of metamorphosis during those late night/early morning hours, and Massaia was determined to capture it.
