Paolo Gioli (born in Sarzano di Rovigo in 1942) is an artist who started in painting, which he abandoned in 1975, to dedicate himself entirely to experimental cinema and photography. His investigation of instant photography via the Polaroid, constitutes an important part of his work. Gioli uses Polaroid’s in an unconventional fashion. In place of conventional framing, he applies the negative to nobler surfaces, like paper or silk, trying to bring photography closer to the realm of fine arts.
