About

Rethinking Land.
A photographic journey.

Not interested in landscape as a photographic genre.
It's all about shadows, lights and surfaces.

This is an ongoing project.

GABRIELE MAGAZZU’

Where are you from? Where do you live?

I was born in Sicily. I’ve lived in Rome for several years. Now I’m settled in Turin.

How old are you?

I’m 33.

How do you pay your bills? Are you working as a professional photographer?

No. I’m trying to pay my bills doing different jobs.

What cameras do you use?

A digital Canon; a Holga, a Yashica (the glorious Fx-3 and a Mat 124G) and a Polaroid for analogic photography.

Any photographer or artist inspiring you?

I don’t know how they’re inspiring me, but I’ll give you some names: Raymond Depardon, Chris Marker, Werner Herzog, Christopher Doyle, William Klein, Robert Rauschenberg… Should I continue?

What/who do you enjoy to shoot the most?

Desolate city details, impressionist environments, people sometimes.

Do you believe in god?

Well, it depends on the weather…

What do you drink on a night out?

Beer, red wine, or Schweppes tonic.

Do you like dancing?

No.

What’s your favorite first name?

I really like mine, Gabriele, and others ending in -ele. 

And Luca and Sofia, also.

Are you a fashion addicted?

No.

What’s your favorite tv series?

None. The only one that I really loved was cancelled by the production after the first season. It was Rubicon. Damn!

Recommend us a book.

America, by Jean Baudrillard.

What’s the country of your dreams?

Kind of utopian country: coastal California climate, Italian cuisine, Scandinavian public welfare.

Have you ever been to Iceland?

No, but I can’t exclude a visit in the future.

What song would you choose for a slideshow of your work?

I usually give the choice to the viewer. 

Or 4’33” by John Cage - played in a loud volume, of course.

Ask yourself a question. Tell me your answer (like Marzullo does)

Q: What’s the time?

A: It’s 5:30 right now.

Q: Thank You.

A: You’re welcome.
