Massimiliano Balo' 1


Massimiliano Balò was born in Sicily. He is a surrealist artist who through photography captures one of the infinite possibilities reality. His world made of "visions" featured by deformed characters which they dissolved in and out of "The Void". He use his personal technique of faster manual zooming with slow shutter speed to create a surreal effect to finish the work processing it to the PC. His works are mostly black and white but he also loves colours. Many of his works are abstract surrealistic but he does as well photojournalism.

Nothing Really Matters






Through the Night

A Journey

I Can't Stop Thinking about you





Nothing is Permanent

Mother of Sorrow

Come into my Trip
