The #ArtBasel’s photo-diary (Part 2)

Dear Diary,

another day of sunshine was blessing the City of Basel with amazing weather.

Excited as ever I prepared myself to start another amazing day at world’ art premier event… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Press Office was as efficient as you would expect in Switzerland: fast, professional and smooth. After the first bureaucratic rites, me and Daniele (Foresti), my photographer for the Sunday, got ready to start and take a good tour of the first floor, i.e. the upper part of the building dedicated to the fair.

As usual, many characters were filling the scene as the day went by steadily and slowly. Between a gallery and another, we even had time to meet some art-aficionados friends from Milan…

As any other long and important event, the last day is always the slowest one and the strangest: the mix of excitement for the last great deals of the week was blended with the tiredness of the last day of work… almost really impossible to understand which feeling was the predominant one.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Laura Bartlett Gallery, London. It was amazing to see this young gallerist after almost a decade since she opened her own space in SW London. Back then she was a young entrepreneur who just finished working for Gagosian and that started on her own feet. Today she is an accomplished and successful art professional and I actually “worked” for her as an intern 🙂OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The very last moment before the fair closed its doors to visitors: tired faces and relief for another successful event that will take place, again in late 2014 in Miami.

Unforgettable!
