Luigi Ghirri


Classic photographers

“Luigi Ghirri revolutionized Italian photography in the 1970s with his fresh color snap-shot style observations of Italian contemporary culture. His small delicately colored prints were conceived in series to create visual poems- gentle but direct. The small scale and modest demeanor of his prints belie their power. Much of the work anticipates the large scale contemporary work of photographers ranging from Miguel Rio Branco to Andreas Gursky.” (source) See some more photos here.
