"Every photographer who uses this language for years ends up owning his own style, his writing and Max Bedendi with white and black has managed to make each of his shots for different subject and subject matter but recognizable as a signature, as a glance. Each image has its own elegance, a signature style that sharpness and accurate composition embellish. A flower know as a landscape trasfromarsi in a story on its own. a boat or the architecture of a village, the nature and details that all gray scale decline, a distant horizon or the sky that meets him touching the hills or roads that are thrown in its infinite, we do meet the gaze of a photographer who is in love with his land and the grace of beauty in all its form and content. In his landscapes the human presence is also perceived in its apparent absence, an oar leaning a certain way next to the boat, a dirt road well defined edges tended fields or patches of vegetation perfectly composed, explain the desire to find the author of this order even where chaos redraws the characteristics of a space. Chaos trained, gained through the use of lights, shades that look like brushstrokes wise, you will be amazed to breathe an atmosphere that is the lifeblood for the eyes and for those who are lucky to live it every day. Looking at the photographs of Max Bedendi you want to be petals or trees, fence or reeds, walls or window, body of water or sky, cloud or reflection of a torrent, it is part of that whole, that the composition of a scene knows as enclosed within the confines of a vision while the photographer expands our perception with his careful look by combining his creativity more refined sensibility. The handwriting light of this author is a black and white that turns its suggestions, a palette of shades that his research becomes extraordinary strokes taken from a visible reality he has chosen as cut and how to capture moments of rare beauty and depth. A visual and sensory across the board that makes her unforgettable invitation to travel within the boundaries of her sensibility combined with an excellent technique that is an integral part and not only the value added!
