Overview

Florence-based photographer Giacomo Costa employs Hollywood-blockbuster-style digital techniques in his large-scale photographs, which reshape our collective idea of the metropolis through fantastic cityscapes straight out of science fiction. At turns historical and contemporary, real and imagined, the images in The Chronicles of Time could be the result of natural catastrophe or nuclear war. At the same time, they are so rich with meticulous detail and intricate perspective that they recall classical Florentine architect Antonio di Pietro Averlino's ideal city. An excellent introduction to Costa's work, this volume includes photographs from the past 12 years.
