The landscape is a place forged by individual and collective actors within a given time, in both material and immaterial ways. It is always pinned to a specific (civil and cultural) history and geography. The everyday perception the individual has of is shaped by visual alphabets imprinted on the environment he is born in and infra-consciously assimilated by him. Ghirri's documentarist photography and Celati's documentaries share this view of the landscape. Their collaboration started from this common perspective. Ghirri's last photographic project, left unfinished but turned into a movie by Celati, questions the (material and cultural) ruins of conrwmporaneity, swinging between memory and imagination.
