Giglio Pasqua’s Portraits Of Homes

Giglio Pasqua captures the deceptive blandness of selected subjects and their hidden history. Peripheral urban areas, everyday scenes and forgotten places are the main venues of his work. He lives and works in Winterthur, Switzerland. The Brazilian jungle village Vitória do Jari is situated in the Amazon basin on the river Jari. In this series, Pasqua chose to capture the village at noon, the most peaceful moment of the day, when the inhabitants stay in, escaping the great heat. His focus on frontal shots underline the basic architecture and its colors: cheerful pastel or bright orange, red or blue. The gaze is fixed on the house fronts, on the locked facades. The perspective makes it impossible to see the houses as picturesque views of an exotic place, rather, it encourages a socially critical approach.
