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, whether 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.
