Lui­gi Ghir­ri was an extra­or­di­na­ry pho­to­gra­pher, as well as a wri­ter who­se care­er was so rich and varied that it seems like a les­son in the con­tem­pora­ry histo­ry of the medi­um. Alt­hough well-known in his nati­ve Ita­ly, Ghir­ri does not yet have the inter­na­tio­nal audi­ence his work meritsaperhaps becau­se he died so young. “It’s Beau­ti­ful Here, Isn’t It …” — the first book published on Ghir­ri in the U.S. — will esta­blish him as the semi­nal artist he was. Uncan­ni­ly pre­sci­ent, Ghir­ri sha­red the sen­si­bi­li­ty of what beca­me known in the U.S. as the New Color and the New Topo­gra­phics move­ments befo­re they had even been named.

Like his coun­ter­parts in Ita­li­an cine­ma, Ghir­ri belie­ved the local and the uni­ver­sal were inse­pa­ra­ble, and that life’s pola­ri­tie­sal­ove and hate, pre­sent and past — were equal­ly com­pel­ling. Not sur­pri­sin­gly, his inte­rests encom­pas­sed all the arts: he worked in Gior­gio Moran­dia’ stu­dio and with archi­tect Aldo Ros­si, while influ­en­cing a gene­ra­ti­on of pho­to­graph­ers, inclu­ding Oli­vo Bar­bie­ri and Mar­tin Parr. This dyna­mic new book inclu­des a selec­tion of Ghir­ri­as essays published in English for the first time as well as a selec­ted chro­no­lo­gy.
