Words

"In the early 1970s Luigi Ghirri delved into fundamental ideas about the role of photography in contemporary art. As he began to structure his first series he often created "maquettes" in order to visualize his work and think about it. In the early 1980s, as he probed deeper in his search for expression on the subject of landscapes, Ghirri started producing larger negatives, clearly not for the sake of technique itself, but rather to "get inside" the subject more intensely. Thanks to these master copies, Ghirri was able to produce excellent contact prints, small photographs that he could cut out, file, and line up in order to see each image, plan his series, organize his own view; he could leave the images loose and bring them together again in endless combinations".

One of my favorite photographers, and this book is great (the reissue of Kodachrome that Mack is about to launch looks even better!).
