Guido Castagnoli’s ‘Provincial Japan’ Series

Phaidon introduce us to Guido Castagnoli‘s Provincial Japan series. Shot in the Shizuoka district, a collection of seemingly uninhabited landscapes and multicoloured Americana with more than a touch of the surreal. “Shooting his first photographs on an old family Leica camera, Castagnoli left his position as an art director at an advertising agency in Milan to pursue photography full time in 2001. His interest in advertising and signage has not decreased, as is evident by the focus of his photographs.”
