Through the course of the 1970s and 1980s, Luigi Ghirri pursued his extraordinary project, open-ended
and mercurial, marked by empathy for the changing everyday spaces of his time. Over the course of his
short career, Ghirri would produce a vast body of photographs without parallel in the Europe of his time
and numerous writings which would have an indelible impact on the history of photography.
This extensive book compiled by the renowned British curator James Lingwood accompanies a touring
exhibition to three major museum venues across Europe and focuses on the first decade of Ghirri’s work,
defined by his 1979 exhibition in Parma. Vera Fotografia was grouped into fourteen different narrative sequences,
each of which is represented in this volume: Fotografie del periodo iniziale (1970), Kodachrome
(1970-78), Colazione sull’erba (1972-74), Catalogo (1970-79), Km 0.250 (1973), Diaframma 11, 1/125, luce
naturale (1970-79), Atlante, (1973), Italia Ailati (1971-79), Il paese del balocchi (1972-79), Vedute (1970-79),
Infinito (1974), In Scala (1976-79), Still Life (1975-79).
The focus of the project is on Ghirri’s quietly compelling project to create a new kind of geography, located
in his fascination with representations of the world, in the form of reproductions, pictures, posters,
models and maps. The mediation of experience through images in an Italy poised between the old and
the new was, for Ghirri, an inexhaustible terrain to survey – “a great adventure into the world of thinking
and looking, a wonderful magic toy that miraculously manages to combine our adult awareness and the
fairy tale world of children…a never-ending journey through great and small, through variations and the
realm of illusions and appearances, a labyrinthine specular place of multitudes and simulation.”
