Gabriele Basilico (1944-2013) was one of the best contemporary Italian photographers. Especially architecture and landscape photography, in particular the urban developments in the industrial edges of countryside and city, were the subject of his photography. He gained international fame with his first project, Ritratti di Fabbriche, Sugarco (1978-1980) on the industrial areas of Milan, the city where he lived and worked. After this project he was invited to collaborate in the first ‘mission photographique de la DATAR’ project in 1984. An initiative of the French government to have the transformation of the rural landscape photographed by 36 photographers. This wonderful book, Italia & France, contains a rich selection of the work that Basilico made for DATAR in France (1984-85), combined with a compelling selection from his Italian landscape photography from 1978-85. The signed book and the dust jacket are in very good condition, without folds, creases or notes. The original blank cardboard slipcase is present. XXXVII pages of text with an essay by Chiaramonte, a biography of Basilico and 110 photo pages.
