Gabriella Mirollo - Studies in Contrast



 


Gabriella Mirollo, a photographer who speaks in the art's language of the exploring her own ego. With her book "Studies in Contrast" we must imagine her as a poet-photographer who wellcomes us in her studio, where the images leaning against the walls, are looking at you from every side. These speak for itself, but even more than others, are speaking her deeper emotions which are present in all his work.
Gabriella redesigned in front of you, according to his criteria of values​​, all the past of its history and make you well imagine his conception of photography, interrelated with emotions and life, which belongs only to her and therefore is opposed, in a totally natural way, to the poetry of other photographers.

Now you have the feeling to come down, full of wonder, in the hold of our own story now you're deciding where the future is taking shape, where the past become future, including disputes, struggles and conflict.

The great gift of Gabriella resides in the effort and desire, in the inner need, that every single image takes to get as close as possible to her specificity, to her essence, this is also the essence of art itself. Art does not exist to record, as a large mirror, all the ups and downs, changes and endless repetition of history. Gabriella Mirollo with her book "Studies in Contrast" is telling us that art is not a choir following the march of our history. Art exists to create their own story.





Gabriella Mirollo is a poet and photographer originally from Manhattan and now living in Vermont. "Studies in Contrast" is a project that emerged from a January 2011 blog post called “Face the Enemy"

I’m glad you have this book too, Laura. My copy is here with me now, very near my desk, along with some of Gabriella’s beautiful writings. As with words, she is a poet with a camera, and there is insight on every page.

Andrew Finnie said...

Well an overused word is 'beautiful' , but that's what came to mind when I saw this. Perhaps richness is better? Lush tones, deep blacks :) The photographs of the book of photographs are superb.

hugs from here, hope you are well and painting thick and juicy :)

What a wonderful review of the work a wonderful artist! Gabriella is a master of language. She has a rare ability to enter the spaces between meanings and bring them light. As she does with her photography. She gifts us an intensity of awareness.

And your writing about her work is so eloquent too, Laura.
Warm greetz.
