With his documentary and surrealistic images of contemporary Italian life, the photographer Luigi Ghirri established his standing as one of the main contemporary photographers of color. Ghirri’s small prints often appear modest, but their cinematic qualities and whimsical perspectives hint at the dualities and contradictions of everyday life. Washed-out colors evoke memories, which Ghirri uses to explore the hidden details within banal scenes. He was inspired by other photographers such as William Eggleston and Lee Friedlander and his aesthetic and conceptual concerns evoke the New Topographics. With it's two color rendition, this image is highly unusual within Ghirri's oeuvre. – In excellent condition.
