In retracing the Viaggio photographic archive in Italy, a collection of 220 photographs from a 1984 project organised by pioneering contemporary photographer Luigi Ghirri, Nicola Nunziata presents a multi-layered book that considers the notion of landscape. Rereading the original images in terms of individual and shared experience, memory, and aesthetics, he investigates their substance – formats, materials, surface textures, colours, marks and traces, signatures of the authors – in order to divulge the singular details that express the history they hold, and thereby reflect upon the sense of transformation on a global scale in the period when they came into being.
