M&L Fine Art hosts an exhibition "Homage to Luigi Ghirri” at their London venue.

Luigi Ghirri (1943 – 1992) was an Italian photographer whose career started in the 1970s when he produced pioneering color photographs of landscape and architecture within the milieu of conceptual art. The photographs are presented with a deadpan, often ironic wit and always consider the tenuous balance between people and their surroundings. "Homage to Luigi Ghirri” pays a tribute to the fine works by the artist that also include a series, photographing parks, beaches, and urban scenes of his native Italy, producing modestly sized, meticulously made prints.

Luigi Ghirri spent his working life in the diverse landscape of the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy where he produced one of the most inspired and layered work in the history of photography. Although he exhibited extensively during his lifetime and was at the pinnacle of his powers when he died in 1992, it has only been after his untimely death that his true talents have begun to be appreciated. 

M&L Fine Art specializes in Modern and Contemporary art with a focus on Italian artists such as Carla Accardi, Mario Ballocco, Agostino Bonalumi, Antonio Calderara, Enrico Castellani, Lucio Fontana, Leoncillo, Piero Manzoni, Giulio Paolini, Angelo Savelli, and Salvatore Scarpitta. The gallery is located in the heart of London’s historical art market district on Old Bond Street and provides an international platform for the artists represented. The gallery’s exhibition schedule is complemented by an educational programme of events and lectures.

The exhibition is on view through December 22, 2017, at M&L Fine Art, 15 Old Bond Street, Mayfair, London W1S 4AX.
