Here, as with the Brion tomb, Guidi has portrayed the variations produced by the light of different times of day and at different months of the year, and the moving complement that the shadows add to each aspect of the architectural work, projecting altered geometries onto the ground.

"I have photographed very often the same subjects both in colour and in black and white. First of all in order to see what happens in both cases, how things get transformed once they have been photographed.
Walker Evans said that many times he used to photograph without knowing what he was doing. It’s at a later moment, when I look at the printed photographs, that I realize having done something necessary.
Some days ago I was reading an essay by Umberto Eco, in which he explained that people who spend so much time taking photographs stop looking at things themselves, and how he quit taking photographs for that reason. In my opinion, on the contrary, it is actually by photographing, or even drawing, that you can develop your sight. To me, photographing is the exercise of looking at something more carefully.
