From Aline Smithson’s article regarding Michael Massaia’s series, “Signals Crossed,” for Lenscratch:
Michael Massaia is a keen observer of New York City. Michael has spent the past nine 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 constant in all of his work. … “Signals Crossed” calls attention to large-scale urban imagery and the night time glow of these LED screens. Using large format cameras, Michael creates otherworldly, surrealistic backdrops to anything static in their way.
