Presentation by Mack: 

" These three volumes encompass the complete evolution of the work of the renowned Italian photographer, Guido Guidi. Made in Sardinia on two trips separated by forty years, these books not only mark the stylistic development in the work of Guidi but also the historical shifts and changes on the remote island.

The first trip was on Guidi's honeymoon in 1974, and with a Nikon F and a FIAT 127 he made a series of black and white photographs which reflect the social and political climate of Sardinia in the post-sixties era. The second visit, in 2011, involved 3 cameras – a Hasselblad, a Deardorff 8x10 and a digital Canon – and the now well-known Guidi palette of tender, almost resigned colour. "

Three paperback volumes each with tipped-in-image and a bilingual English / Italian booklet, all housed together in a printed slipcase.

424 pages - Softcovers in cardboard slipcase
