Whether photographing avant-garde theatre, gypsies on the steppes of Eastern Europe, resistance to Soviet guns and tanks advancing on Prague, Josef Koudelka has consistently produced images that provoke a connection to the larger questions of human existence. This book brings together panoramic photographs from one of his most recent projects, the landscape of the Piedmont region of northern Italy. As Giuseppe Culicchia says in his introduction to this superb collection, Todays Piedmont is a region that is both wonderful and wounded. And here they are: the wonders and the wounds. Every one of Josef Koudelkas shots stirs up an emotion Humans are largely absent from Koudelkas images, because the books main protagonist is the land itself. This beautifully bound volume is sure to have a powerful resonance for all lovers of photography.
