The photographs that constitute Rue Noguier look extraordinarily similar topaintings. The subjects are cosy interiors, common life scenes that convey alltheir expressivity thanks to the use of black and white. Di Liborio’s personalsensitivity infuses fresh blood into these scenes and enhances their power ofaffecting the observers. The photographs show simple bedrooms where the light,coming from the outside, plays with the shadows making every detail morerealistic and personal, like something we have personally experienced. In fact,when looking at these pictures, we feel like we are waking up in the morning inour own bedroom - a place open to the outside but also a symbolicalrepresentation of our private life. To induce this feeling, there are the openwindow, covered with a white curtain that lets the light in, and several bookscarelessly placed next to the pillow on a bed that has been negligently made.All these elements represent details of an ordinary morning, segments of lifethat everyone can recall from their memory.
An amateur photographer since the 80s, Cesare di Liborio was born in Reggio Emilia, where, as a young man, he developed a great passion for a peculiar form of art: the black and white photography. Di Liborio, after exhibiting in several solo and collective shows, both in Italy and abroad, was invited by Michèle Moutashar to expose his Les colonnes d’Hercules at the Muséè Reattu in Arles, on the occasion of XXXI Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie. From that moment, his career flourished: his work was shown in Bruxelles, at the European Parliament, in 2001; he was also featured in an exhibition in Alexandria (Egypt) during the Festival méditerranéen d’Alexandrie. In 2005, he participated in FIAC (Fiera Internazionale d'Arte Contemporanea), Paris, exposing his Pallas. After exposing his series Les Colonnes d’Hercules at the Photography Museum of Seoul, Di Liborio finished his project Appena prima di…, focused on capturing the moment that comes right before an event, which was exhibited in 2014 in Arles. Cesare Di Liborio’s shots have been published and exposed several times, and are currently part of the photography collections of some of the world’s finest cultural institutions, such as the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles (USA). Moreover, his pictures are part of the collections of the Bibliotheque Nationale de France, Parigi Musée Reattu (Arles, France), of the Musée de la Photographie (Charleroi, Belgium) and of the Maison Européenne de la Photographie (Parigi, Francia).
Prestigious authors, such as Jacques Le Goff and Italo Zannier, havededicated many publications to him.
