ASSOULINE IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE LUXURY OF SPACE
USA- Assouline Publishing, the illustrated book-publishing house behind such photography titles as Dominique Nabokov’s Paris Living Rooms, Louise Lawler: An Arrangement of Pictures, Color Photography and Alexey Brodovitch, is pleased to announce the release of Luxury of Space by Oberto Gili, a visually stunning portraiture of a slice of life captured within the comforts of our living environment. Home is simply space: a fish tank, a castle, a hangar, a plastic roof, a square car, an apartment, a bar, a hotel room, a studio, a garden can all be your nest if they give you shelter and emotions. Fleeting human moments memorialized by Oberto Gili’s camera translate formally into beautifully balanced classical images. His camera, like his personality, is whimsical, questioning, nonjudgemental and tenderly objective. Gili’s images of interiors capture fundamental moments of human existence, quiet moments and basic needs, whether it’s a man sitting on his couch surrounded by dogs, a young couple getting into bed, a woman watching herself getting dressed in the mirror or a girls swimming alone in a pool, we experience narrative, isolation, intrusion through Gili’s lens. Gili shows us different perspective of home: color, happiness, sex, depression, arrogance, creativity, simplicity, boredom. The images in this stunning volume are a diary of the interiors and situations that have, over the last thirty years, struck Gili’s curiosity and fantasy the most. Simple, still and understated, Gili’s images of interiors all have possibility as their subtext. For Serial Rights information, please contact Adam Nelson at nelson@workhousepr.com.
