Talks on Italian Photography #1: Guido Guidi

Talks on Italian Photography #1

Guido Guidi

Italian photographer Guido Guidi will be in conversation with Marco Delogu. Marcello Galvani, Luca Nostri and Francesco Neri, will also join the talk, that will explore the new photographic research in Italy, starting from personal and geographical identities.

Guidi will be also in conversation with Michael Mack (Mack Books) and Charlotte Schepcke (Large Glass Gallery) about his last book "Per Strada". Per Strada brings together photographs made by Guidi from 1980 to 1994, along the Via Emilia an ancient Italian road connecting Milan with the Adriatic Sea, which passes close to Guidi's home. To this day, the Via Emilia is the territorial backbone of the Southern tier of the Po Valley, running through mid-size cities such as Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Bologna, Forli’, and Rimini. Using an 8x10 inch camera, Guidi directs his lens towards the interstices between cities rather than on historical centres. His three-volume book charts a rich and complex palimpsest of signs in the landscape built from centuries of residential, agricultural, industrial, and commercial activity. For the Italian artist, photographing everyday landscapes is a way to acknowledge the importance of the vernacular, but also to break free from ones own stereotypes, ideas, and constraints. As he has stated, At a certain moment I felt pushed to leave my room, like in Wim Wenders’s film “The Wrong Move” (1975), when Wilhelm breaks the windowpane with the palm of his hand and leaves the house. I leave the house and what do I find? A house, an entrance door, a woman who passes by or who asks me something.




Guido Guidi (b. 1941, Cesena, Italy) lives and works in Cesena. He is a leading voice in the contemporary photographic scenario. His work, spanning over more than 40 years, has focused on rural and suburban landscapes in Italy and Europe. Guidi’s photographs have been exhibited extensively, including at Fotomuseum Winterthur (2014); Venice Biennale (2004); Canadian Centre for Architecture (2001); Guggenheim Museum, New York (1994); and Centre Pompidou, Paris (1989), among other institutions. He has published numerous books, including Guardando A Est (Walther Konig, 2015 ); Veramente (MACK, 2014) Preganziol (MACK, 2013); A New Map of Italy (Loosestrife, 2011); and Due fotografi per il Teatro Bonci (co-authored by Luigi Ghirri, 1983), among other titles. Since 1986 Guidi has taught photography at various Italian universities, and since 2001 he has been a visiting professor at the IUAV, Venice.
