Description

In-between territories is a collection of 131 photographs, most of them previously unpublished, produced by Gabriele Basilico over the course of his career, from the late 1980s up to the first decade of the 2000s and beyond. The book, edited by Filippo Maggia, approaches the extensive artistic body of work left by this Milanese photographer from an angle that has received little consideration until now.

Basilico’s in-between territories are physical spaces and seem almost tangi ble to the gaze, but they are also mental spaces, induced in the observer by the voids, the absences determined by pauses and silences in the visual construction of the image. The depth of the light and the choice of perspective adopted by Basilico help to deter mine the equilibrium of shape between the volumes, inducing the right interpretation of the image, through that act of suspension and contemplation that the photographer often emphasized as a fundamental moment in observing the landscape, of whatever kind it may be and however it presents itself.
