Italian-born Brooklyn-based photographer Gabriele Baldotto has colour-led curation down to a T. As far as subject matter goes his direction is almost ambiguous, treading the fine line between fashion editorial imagery, in which the garments his subjects wear appear to have been carefully chosen, and a still life series, with several shots of landscapes scattered throughout.
The subject doesn’t seem to be important however, because his images are strung together with a delicate colour palette which permeates into every corner. Here it’s a selection of blues, from inky teal to bright cobalt tarpaulin juxtaposed with the kind of sepia sandy brown to the burnt orange of a model’s hair. It’s a hard combination to resist. Gabriele’s is exactly the kind of haphazard and yet perfectly natural-seeming collection that we go for, so in this case, we’ll let go of the temptation to over-think and instead enjoy his work for what it is; a gorgeous collection of photographs.
