Michael Massaia is a 38-year-old fine art photographer and printmaker based in New Jersey. Michael has spent the past 9 years documenting areas and objects that never extend to far from his front door. For his series “Saudade”, Massaia captured analog pinball machines with a modified 4×5 and 5×7 camera, back and white film, and creates gold-toned gelatin silver prints by hand.

The project was my way of saying goodbye to the quickly shrinking analog world, while at the same time paying homage to the beauty of these last standing machines.
