Mario Giacomelli was a winner of numerous medals and prizes, and achieved international status for his photographic work. With 684 beautiful and poetic duotone photographs, this collection displays an understanding of the photographer's country and its people, and a mastery of form and effect that make his photographs imaginative works of art.
'This monograph skilfully rehearses one of the most extraordinary, original and engaging careers in photography' (Times Literary Supplement)
Alistair Crawford has contributed widely to photography books, catalogues and journals in Britain, France, Italy, New Zealand and the US. He has also curated several major touring photographic exhibitions including 'Mario Giacomelli', which was PrintWorks Gallery, Chicago, in 1991
