Luigi Ghirri

Luigi Ghirri (1943-1992) was an Italian photographer who shared the sensibilities of the New Colour and New Topographics Movement in the United States. I can only imagine that Ghirri's muted colour vintage prints from the 70s and 80s partly influenced the global trend toward antique aesthetics in contemporary photography today. By antique, I mean muted colours, grainy processing, and extreme contrasts in exposures, to say the very least.
