Luigi Ghirri, Atlante, 2000

Atlante is the title of a sensitive photo essay that constitutes a voyage of discovery through the pages of an atlas on the part of one of the most significant of Italy’s contemporary photographers: Luigi Ghirri. The artist sees this work to hold “the place where all the signs on the face of the earth, both natural and artificial, are represented: mountains, lakes, oceans, cities, villages, stars, the sun.” He views these things through a trusted and universally recognized system of cursory signs, treating them like every other daily object, and thus as an image.
