Ilaria Poli, photographer in Brescia, works mostly with black and white and has an apparent, almost obsessive interest into the figures and faces of men and women represented in both the singularity of the detail or expression, or set in a context, mainly urban or rural. Each figure is a captivating autobiographical mirror, in which the gaze is reflected in the representation of the self.
Her peculiarity is the fleeting glance, witnessed by many street shots, perfect in their immediacy: an ability at fixing the impromptu precious moments turning in memorable shots. A string of eye-catching images, balanced and well built, sometimes completed by a thorough post-production process. Pictures that linger in the eye and in the memory of the beholder.
