Possibly the best and certainly the most acclaimed Italian photographer of architecture, Basilico (Milano, 1944-2013) was himself an architect, though his studies do not fully explain his approach.
.:. In a way, perspective and optical bench cameras were the focus. But another was a mysterious ability to catch shapes apparently empty - people are hardly shown - yet promising life. It's the opposite of Le Corbusier's concept of buildings as machines for living.
.:. The exhibition at Palazzo Reale displays hundreds of pictures in a worldwide gaze, including the famous series about Beyrouth immediately after its bombings in 1991. Another exhibition at the Triennale, which closed on January 7, documented Basilico's life-long work about his hometown.
