Luigi Ghirri: Contemporary Italian Photographer

I’ve recently discovered Luigi Ghirri – a contemporary Italian photographer who is slowly making his way to the top. His photographs typically combine Italian landscapes with surrealist-like elements. Blurry lines and melancholy colors are often seen due to his use of a Kodachrome camera.

I feel quite inspired by Ghirri. There’s something real about his photos – as if you would see them in a scrapbook on some old Italian woman’s coffee table; however there’s also this air of mysteriousness, a sense of eeriness and fog that sends you goosebumps and tells you it’s not all real.

Some of my personal favorites are below:
