Guido Guidi, a key figure of European photography, has spent three decades teaching and sharing his knowledge of photography at the University of Architecture in Venice, at the Academy of Fine Arts in Ravenna and at the institute of Industrial Arts in Urbino. Over this period Guidi has developed a personal philosophy about the language of photography which has informed his artistic practice. In this publication, conceived as a visual notebook, Guidi examines the silent language of communication through signs and symbols by excavating the work of masters of photography and italian classical artists, suggesting deep connections between them. Inspired by the famous mosaic of St. Apollinare in Classe in Ravenna, La figura dell’Orante is the first in a series of Guidi’s notebooks of great educational and artistic value.
