About the Italian photographer, Guido GUIDI (b.1941)
Guido GUIDI's work since more than 40 years has focused in particular on rural and suburban geographies in Italy and Europe. He began experimenting in the late 1960s with pseudo-documentary images that interrogated photography's objectivity. Influenced by Neorealist film and Conceptual art, in the 1970s he began investigating Italy's man-altered landscape. Working in marginal and decayed spaces with a (8"×10") camera, he creates dense sequences intended as meditations on the meaning of landscape, photography, and seeing.
