Luigi Ghirri: Cardboard Landscapes (Photographs from 1971–1973) - Hardcover
Description
Introduction by Sarah Hermanson Meister
 
In March 1975, on a visit to New York, the esteemed art historian Arturo Carlo Quintavalle hand-delivered a unique representation of Luigi Ghirri's work to John Szarkowski, director of MoMA's Department of Photography at the time. Among the items Quintavalle donated to the Museum on behalf of the artist was a handbound album of 111 photographs from the early 1970s titled Paesaggi di cartone, or Cardboard Landscapes. The volume was then deposited in the departmental collection, where it remained, out of sight, for nearly four decades.
 
This luxe facsimile edition, identical to the original album in all essential details, makes Ghirri's singular, all but unknown presentation album available to the public for the first time—at a moment of increasing recognition of Ghirri’s significance in the history of photography. 112 pp.; 111 illus.
