Overview

This is the first comprehensive survey on the work of the great, poetic, Italian photographer Mario Giacomelli (1925-2000). Arranged in themes, each section is a testament to his highly personal and artistically atmospheric visual style. Mario Ciacomelli demonstrates his life-long preoccupation with landscapes (emphasizing their linear and abstract patterns), rural townscapes, street scenes, still lifes, and portraits of everyday Italian life. His mastery of form and effect make his photographs imaginative and striking. With over 600 beautiful and poetic duotone photographs this extraordinary and inspiring collection displays a profound understanding of the photographer's country and its people. The book also includes an exclusive interview with Giacomelli by Alessandra Mauro.
