Luigi Ghirri
Featured Profile

Luigi Ghirri was born in 1943 in Scandiano, in the province of Reggio Emilia, Italy. He shares an interest for vernacular cultures with Walker Evans, by whom he affirms having been strongly influenced since 1977. In 1979, he shows extracts from the series “Breakfast the grass” and “Italian memories” at the Venice Biennale.

Landscapes shaped by agriculture, urbanism or tourism, buildings signed and built by human genius, Ghirri continues his research on the very locations of the creation embodied by Giorgio Morandi. With his photographs of the cemetery of Modena, in 1983, Luigi Ghirri starts a close collaboration with Aldo Rossi, which leads to the production of books and writings on the topic of architecture and its representation.
