Massimo Rivenci was born and lives in Padua (Italy).
Self-taught; sees photography as a social commitment, emphasized by his love for the earth and natural elements.
Massimo loves the freedom of this medium, as it allows him to move mentally and physically among the wonders our Mother Nature.
He develops a technique that finds its final revelation in the manual decoloration of photographs.
The work on canvas becomes the contamination of two languages: photographic and pictorial.
Perception finds the interpretative suggestion in the environment, while the discoloration of the subjects becomes itself a metaphor of the constant and destructive human intervention on the natural environment.
