Michael Massaia
Chinatown Nights
 
  

Michael Massaia uses a large assortment of cameras, tools, filters, and techniques to document the New York City he experiences. To re-introduce people to the mundane, and find the moments that have fallen between the cracks, is his ultimate goal. All of his photographs are true one shot candid scenes that have been pushed to their limit to reveal the wonder and the isolation of the mythic city.
 
For his "Chinatown Nights" portfolio, Michael used 11"x14", 8"x10", 4"x5" view cameras coupled with traditional black and white film to capture the highest possible resolution and dynamic range. After the image has been captured and the film developed, Michael then hand makes Platinum/Palladium prints using a "damp processing" technique he developed. Michael works alone and is the sole craftsman in the process.
