Fabio Paleari is a Milan-born photographer whose photographs and videos form an intimate diary of experience and emotion. In each shot, there is a revelatory narrative depicted within the concrete parameters of time and space: a delicate balance between subjectivity and objectivity. The conflict between soft and harsh, detached and intimate, glossy and gritty is omnipresent, making his portraiture both tender and explosive. This explosivity comes as no surprise given the artist’s extensive relationship with beat generation poets such as Allen Ginsberg and William S. Burroughs, and the influence of situationist theorist Guy Debord, which meld with Fabio’s personal vision in a totally ‘living’ art form. Though his subject matter often typifies a specific generation or location, Fabio’s instinctively anthropological eye encourages a move from wholly dispassionate reportage to something altogether more meditative. His innate ability to capture the fleeting has lead to his reputation as one of Italy’s most personal and profound photographers.
