A decade of photographs and a crucial phase in Guido Guidi’s career, with his decision to work with the large format and the beginning of an investigation of the landscape, combined with a continual probing of the way in which we look at it. A selection of 130 photographs that takes us from the region of Cesena, where he was born, first to Venice and the Marghera area and then to the foothills of the Alps in the Veneto, along those provincial roads that have now become the photographic imagery of a lost and gloomy Italy. A progressive emptying of the forms that slowly leads us to pay attention to the simple act of seeing, in which the relationship between the whole and the detail, the significance of what remains outside the frame and the sense of the passing of time, which were to be so characteristic of Guidi’s subsequent production, already emerge in all their force.
