Los Angeles gallery M+B is showing two very different bodies of work this fall, one (Vitali) rooted in the fine art world and another (Nga) very much in the traditional documentary vein.

Italian photographer Massimo Vitali large-scale color photos of beach-goers will be the subject of his first Los Angeles exhibition. Using a large-format camera, Vitali captures beautiful shots of crowded European beaches. The amount of detail in the photographs is pretty astounding, and lends itself perfectly to the exhibition format. Also on display will be Vitali’s never-before-seen shots of New York beaches.
