This work is a reflection of the way in which people approach construction in the Salento area of southern Italy. When seeing the images for the first time we are quickly left with the impression that most of the houses are abandoned for legal reasons or even money issues (financial crisis). And in some cases this turns out to be the case, but during his stay Gabriel would soon come to understand that in fact people from this area spend their entire life building a house as a gift for the next generation. In addition to this, what interested Gabriel is how beautifully these houses are integrated into, and have become a part of, the local landscape. Here below you will find a selection of just some of the images.
