Work Book 1969-2006

@ Basilico, Gabriele



Publisher's presentation:

"This is the first complete monograph dedicated to the work of the Italian photographer Gabriele Basilico, who is recognised internationally as one of the most important contemporary landscape photographers. With more than 300 photographs included – from Glasgow to Tel-Aviv, from Milan to Beirut – it is a comprehensive overview of a major figure whose career has spanned almost 40 years.

Born in Milan in 1944, Gabriele Basilico first studied architecture. This early training is reflected in his work and shows in his understanding of the landscape and architectural form. His landscapes avoid human presence and explore the complex interrelationships between the built environment and the natural one.

Gabriele Basilico’s work has been widely exhibited in major international galleries worldwide and he has published over a dozen books on individual proejcts for publishers such as Thames & Hudson, Scalo, Phaidon and the Stedelijk Museum. This, however, is the first time that the extensive range of his work has been published in a single volume."
