Guido Guidi (born in Cesena in 1941) is an Italian photographer, who began experimenting, in the late 1960s with pseudo‐documentary, 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.
