Publisher’s Description: 


These two volumes encompass the complete evolution of the work of the renowned Italian photographer, Guido Guidi. Made in Sardinia on two trips separated by forty years, the two books not only mark the stylistic development in the work of Guidi but also the historical shifts and changes on the remote island.

The first trip was on Guidi’s honeymoon in 1974, and with a Nikon F and a FIAT 127 he made a series of black and white photographs which reflect the social and political climate of Sardinia in the post-sixties era. The second visit, in 2011, involved 3 cameras – a Hasselblad, a Deardorff 8x10 and a digital Canon – and the now well-known Guidi palette of tender, almost resigned colour.

Guido Guidi (b. 1941, Cesena, Italy) lives and works in Cesena. 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.
