PREGANZIOL, 1983 by Guido Guidi [SIGNED]

イタリア・チェゼーナ出身のフォトグラファー、グイド・グイディ(Guido Guidi)の作品集。1983年にイタリア・プレガンツィオールにある一室で撮影された16枚の写真は、全て1つの空間の中(4つのむき出しの壁と2つの窓)で撮影され、唯一、時間の経過とともに変化する光の動きにより一枚ごとに異なる表情が映し出された短編シリーズ。巻末にRoberta Valtortaによる寄稿を収録。

Thirty years ago in 1983, Italian photographer Guido Guidi created a short photographic series, taken inside a room in Preganziol, Italy. The sixteen images which make up Preganziol, 1983 were taken within the confines of four bare walls. The only light is emitted through two windows which sit crossways from one another. Preganziol, 1983 is, at first glance, a simple exploration of light, a photographer’s exercise in how to define and describe physical space within a photograph and how light shapes these descriptions. On closer inspection the series is multi-layered: Guidi’s portraits of a room alludes to the idea of the camera obscura; exterior vistas allude to the Albertian window; blank walls create an aura of emptiness and abandonment; and the shifting of light across the walls signifies the movement of time. Guidi's skill as a photographer and craftsman of the image is evident here, and this conceptual sequence is charged by a leitmotif running through Guidi's work: the void, the knowledge that beyond the frame reality goes on unfolding, immeasurable, endless.
