Retracing the distinctive 40-year career of Italian photographer Guido Guidi’s, “Veramente” gathers excerpts of his entire oeuvre spanning from 1959 to the present. Pioneer of Italian landscape photography, Guidi’s body of images highlights the importance of the medium as a process and experience of understanding, and carries out a visual discourse upon the meaning of seeing itself. The publication accompanies an eponymous touring exhibition that took place at the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson in Paris, at the Huis Marseille Museum voor Fotografie in Amsterdam, and will be on show at the Museo d’Arte della Città, Ravenna, in October 2014.
Guido Guidi was born in Cesena, Italy, in 1941, where he still lives and works. He teaches at IUAV, where he studied architecture himself. Veramente is his second book published by MACK, after Preganziol, 1983 (2013).
