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. Gabriele Basilico first studied architecture, and 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. A major retrospective of Basilico’s work began an international tour at the prestigious Maison Europeenne de la Photographie in Paris in summer 2006.
