Title

Stelle e lucciole

Description

Stelle e lucciole was conceived between 1969 and the early Seventies, and it is one of the first episodes of the prolific collaboration between Franco Guerzoni and Luigi Ghirri, which produced interesting and relevant results. These photographs revolve around the intention of the two artists and friends to capture in a single frame the starry sky and the bright trails of light left behind by fireflies. Indeed, Ghirri shot many takes of that picture, but he was not able to achieve the results he was aiming for due to technical issues. Guerzoni donated these photographs to MORE. To define this project as unrealized would not be fully correct; therefore, as Guerzoni himself agreed, it should be rather described as an unresolved, interrupted project, unable to achieve its expected outcome.
