Luigi Ghirri worked primarily with the landscape and architecture of his native Italy. His fresh color observations of Italy's contemporary culture are witty, poetic, and often surreal, as in Ruvo di Puglia, as William Eggleston notes in the preface to It's Beautiful Here, Isn't It... (Aperture 2008). "He teases the viewer about what is real and what is not." Ghirri's images are visually profound and are about the nature of representation and seeing. Ghirri influenced a generation of photographers, including Eggleston, Olivo Barbieri, and Martin Parr. Aperture is pleased to offer this limited-edition archival pigment in print in collaboration with Paola Ghirri, the artist's wife.
