Luigi Ghirri
Italian, 1943–1992
Follow

Italian photographer Luigi Ghirri established his reputation with documentary-meets-surrealistic snapshots of contemporary Italian life. Ghirri’s small prints 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 in banal scenes. He was influenced by other snapshot photographers such as William Eggleston and Lee Friedlander, and his aesthetic and conceptual concerns also evoked the New Topographics.
