Gabriele Basilico’s intermediate territories are physical spaces regulated in each instance by elements that the author indicates as portals for entering the work and reading, perhaps even breathing, its content. Spaces that open out into wide views where many events occur simultaneously, where life pulsates and spreads, as in the great metropolitan arteries and alleyways of Shanghai, or along the uncertain streets of Middle Eastern cities. Giving order to these contradictions, exorcising the suburbs forgotten by architects and urban planners intrigues Basilico and stimulates his attention more than ever as he seeks a new relationship with space. In Intermediate Territories Gabriele Basilico reminds us that it is essential to enter the image slowly in order to grasp its internal coherence, at the same slow pace originally necessary for the photographer to perceive the space, assimilate the place, and ultimately transform the experience into an image.
