About the Italian photographer, Luigi GHIRRI (1943-1992)

Luigi GHIRRI spent his working life in Emilia Romagna, where he created one of the most open and complex works in the history of photography. He has been exhibited both in Italy and internationally and was at the height of his career when he died in 1992. As an autodidact, he presented his surroundings in close-cut pictures and photographed the Italian landscape with advertisements, postcards, potted plants, walls, windows and people. He struggled to see our ability to see, to maintain. His works are powerful tools for the re-education of the gaze.
