Gabriele Basilico (1944 – 13 February 2013) was an italian photographer. He defined himself as a measurer of space.
“Thinking through the images about the relationship between the object-chair and the human body it came to my mind the funny and grotesque image that the hard summer chairs left in the naked bodies of the swimmers. It is a real negative “by contact”. A provisional relief tattoo which is printed on the body aesthetically developing the original surface of the contact.”
