Item description for Luxury of Space by Oberto Gili...
Fleeting human moments memorialized by Oberto Gili's camera translate formally into beautifully balanced classical images. His camera, like his personality, is whimsical, questioning, nonjudgmental 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 his dogs, a young couple getting into bed, a woman watching herself getting dressed in the mirror or a girl swimming alone in a pool, we experience narrative, isolation, intrusion through Gili's lens. Gili shows us different perspectives 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.

A very personal glimpse into the files of one of the greatest domestic style photographers ever. This selection of images is quite different from what the magazines that hire Gili typically run. A portrait of artist emerges.

Oberto Gili's first book is really a masterpiece... I'm waiting for the second!
