Luigi Ghirri - The Complete Essays

Though best known for his photography, Luigi Ghirri’s foundation as a writer is well established. The Complete Essays 1973-1991, now available for the first time in English, is a collection of nearly 70 works in which Ghirri thoughtfully reflects on the central themes of his photographs. While his writing stands alone beautifully, it’s most poignant as an enriching complement to his photography. Never collapsing the experience of his work, Ghirri’s words navigate a course of exploration rather than explanation, creating a dialogue between the two forms that serves to expand the enjoyment of both.
