Guido Guidi



Guidi, Guido (born 1941), Italian photographer, who
began experimenting in the late 1960s with pseudodocumentary
images that interrogated photography’s objectivity.
Influenced by Neorealist film and Conceptual art, in
the 1970s he began investigating Italy’s man-altered
landscape. Working in marginal and decayed spaces
with a 20.3 × 25.4 cm (8 × 10 in) camera, Guidi creates
dense sequences intended as meditations on the
meaning of landscape, photography, and seeing. Later
he investigated the life and death of modernist
architecture, with projects on Scarpa, van der Rohe, and Le Corbusier.
