The 'Cinematic Distributor' series catapults the spectator into a dreamlike, cinematic dimension, dictated by the darkness of the night and the presence of fog.
The latter, evanescent, envelops the entire scene and limits visibility. The world seen from, and through, the fog takes on blurred, magical and often evocative contours and landscape elements are barely discernible. Only under appropriate conditions of artificial lighting (LED, neon) does the fog become a visible trace.
The layer of mist, devious, bursts in unannounced, and rests on the real protagonist of the shot: the microcosm of the petrol station at the edge of a road becomes central and is endowed with meaning.
The service station, a non-place and a crossroads of mobility, becomes a symbol of modernity and the frenzy of the roads of today's world that empty out at night.
The journey is a crossing that brings together the need to do, to see and to be seen. The fog is therefore - at the same time - an unexpected event and the initiation of a different itinerary, because it forces one to change course: stopping one's journey becomes the only thing to do for one's own safety, and the service station - generally destined for solitary individuals and those passing through - now becomes a safe harbour. It only puts the individual in contact with another image of himself. Petrol, flammable, is a metaphor for creativity, where a simple spark can ignite ideas.

1990 Venice, Italy

Pierpaolo Maso was born in Dolo, in the province of Venice, in 1990.
His first approach to photography occurred during high school, when he decided to attend the Art Institute in Venice.
After finishing high school, thanks to some savings, he bought his first camera and, following this choice, he enrolled at the Venice Academy of Fine Arts, with a specialization in NTA (New Technologies of Art).
In 2015, after graduating with a Bachelor's degree, he began travelling. On 8 July 2015, he was the first to arrive at the site of the F4 tornado that struck the Riviera del Brenta. Some of his shots on that occasion were published by national newspapers and shared by important personalities in the world of art and photography.
Also in 2015, he was assigned, by the important Italian company Lavazza, to be the photographer during the 'Meeting of the Golden Beans' in Porto Maso (Malta).
From that moment on, he began a period of fervent activity in the Veneto nightlife and the organisation of events and photographic exhibitions throughout Italy.                                                                                                                                                                                                           In 2017, he held two solo exhibitions in Bologna, including "A Little View / A Big View", an exhibition that presents the artist's point of view as well as his photographic interpretation of the city's street life.
In 2019, the first solo exhibition is organised in Barcelona, at SB Diagonal Zero.                                                        
Finally, in 2022, he came into contact with Larin Group, for which he realised a reportage in the lands of Tuscany.
