What is it?Every[One] is now a concrete project which originates from the ambitious goal of Massimo Masini who wants to photograph ALL without distinction or selection of any kind, to "tell" how much there is in each person through one single and simple snap, transforming utopia in reality. A headshot* is an unmistakable, stylistic impression and unique for everyone. Because the photographic art is and should be universal. To collect and archive the identity of all of you in one project, one of a kind, which hopes to become a new "most" in the world of photography and social networking, aligning itself but also contradicted and even subverting a number of fundamental principles. Taking part in Every[One] does not mean only "put one’s face" but also signifies approaching a new philosophy of beingness and appearance.
