Fabio Barile


Fabio Barile (1980) centres his work on the study of complex phenomena, starting with the observation of the erosion of coasts and of the geological landscape. Over the years, he has developed a use of photography as a philosophical instrument to analyze reality. Since 2013, he has been investigating the intricate formation processes of the landscapes we live in, through geological evidence, experimentation with photographic materials and simulation of natural processes. In his most recent work, Works for a cosmic feeling (2018–ongoing), a collection of photographic projects that constitute a journey into interconnectivity, the artist uses photography as a stratigraphic tool and attempts to understand and portray reality, capturing the interaction between apparently distant scales, elements and times.
