Gianfranco Pezzot, b. 1969, is an Italian conceptual photographer interested in the ways we shape, use and experience the environments we create. In his series Resorts, depicting various abandoned holiday locales post-vacation season, Pezzot emphasizes the relationship between our economical need for tourism and the lasting effects it plays on the environments we inhabit.
