Overview


Fleeting human moments memorialized by Oberto Gili's camera translate formally into beautifully balanced classical images. His camera, like his personality, is whimsical questioning, non-judgemental and tenderly objective. Gili's images of interiors capture fundamental moments of human existence, quiet moments and basic needs, wether it's a man on sitting on his coach surrounded by his dogs, a young couple getting into bed, a woman watching herself getting dressed in the mirror or a girl swimming alone in a pool, we experience narrative, isolation, intrusion through Gili's lens. Gili shows us different perspectives of home: color, happiness, sex, depression, arrogance, creativity, simplicity, boredom. These images in this stunning volume are a diary of the interiors and situations that have, over the last thirty years, strung Gili's curiosity and fantasy the most. Simple, still and understated, Gili's images of interiors all have possibility as their subtext.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Photographs by Gili, who regularly works for magazines such as Vogue and Travel & Leisure, can make even the most modest living space seem exotic. This lush work evolved out of an earlier assignment to photograph the homes of the rich and famous-a project that expanded the artist's definition of home. This collection features images of traditional "homes," including sculptor Anish Kapoor's bedroom, writer Tama Janowitz's Brooklyn apartment, and fashion designer Betsey Johnson's New York loft. Gili also photographs many nontraditional spaces, including a public gym in Havana, a goldfish tank, a skateboard, and a car wash. Gili treats all of his interior images as fashion, transforming each room into a richly colored work of art. In the introduction, the artist writes about some of the more memorable spaces he has photographed, thus setting the tone for the book. The book's design is as posh as the photographs themselves. Recommended for all general collections.-Shauna Frischkorn, Millersville Univ., PA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
