Silenzi di forme - fotografie di Luca Gilli nel Parco dei Cento Laghi

The image is felt, visualized, takes shape in the peacefulness of a meditation, before the shutters open themselves and the films and the paper are dipped into the trays! Isn't it true that this is what we perceive through the images by Luca Gilli? Without any sort of barrenness, and far from writing a banal description, these images awake, suggest, murmur, highlight. What else should I say? Describing the images is useless, unnecessary. They already have their own language. Quoting other names, evoking other considerable works of art would not lead us further. Luca Gilli and the photographers we have mentioned have in common their close relationship with nature. They understand and respect it. They love taking pictures, they take them in a personal and creative style. This is the secret. Nothing else. Georges Vercheval (honorary director of the Photography Museum in Charleroi).

The pictures by Luca Gilli do not deceive the readers of this book, their beauty does not only depend on appearance, on the great formal refinement, on the irreproachable technique, but also on an ancient feeling which once linked man to nature, where the wood and the water were spaces where the play was performed, where you could meet dragons and sprites, where the fairy-tale was born to become tale in nights of friendship, under the cosy warmth of the friendly stars. Places where imagination was the queen and where the imaginary was intended at perceiving noises and songs, meetings of fairies and struggles among witches. All this lies behind pictures where each sign is "the landscape beyond the mirror". Carroll's mirror. Vasco Ascolini
