Work / Photography

Giasco Bertoli

Bertoli’s photographs are subtle, sometimes melancholic, and always capable of drawing you in. Pictured is an image from his Tennis Courts series, which Nieves published in 2009, and about which Bertoli said the following: “The work came about by chance. Some time after I’d moved to Paris, I was back in Switzerland, walking in the woods near where I grew up and I came across an abandoned tennis court. I photographed that one, then courts around the neighbourhood where I grew up, and have continued to photogragraph deserted tennis courts ever since.” Cool.
