«The Last Depth of Peace»1. Representation of Silence in Landscape Photography

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Landscape Photography; Silence; Luigi Ghirri; Robert Adams; Ursula Schulz-Dornburg.

The essay seeks to investigate the ways of representing silence in landscape photography through the work of three important authors of contemporary photography: Luigi Ghirri, Robert Adams and Ursula Schulz-Dornburg. In this discussion, silence is intended essentially as a category of seeing and not of hearing. Silence is also endowed, by these three photographers, with a fundamental ethical value in the construction of a memory of places that takes on value in reaffirming our collective identity.
