"Over the past years, his attention to forms--fading, complex, or composed--is surely a constant in his compositions and production. His view as a photographer gives the images their own orientation and their own unity, which exists beyond the bodies, even in the presence of a very accentuated fading of forms."
Renato Miracco, excerpted from Surf's Up: Altered States Inside Our Mind in Liminal.

Published by Charta.
Text by Renato Miracco, Giuseppe Ripa.

In the hands of Italian photographer Giuseppe Ripa (born 1962), even the most familiar cities can be transfigured into surreal landscapes. Following his 2008 elegy for Milan, in Liminal, New York provides the setting for Ripa's elegant black-and-white photographs, which are as likely to stress hyperdefinition as they are to revel in languid blurriness.

Giuseppe Ripa: MoondanceGiuseppe Ripa: Moondance

Published by Charta.
Text by Renato Miracco, Giuseppe Ripa.

Giuseppe Ripa's Moondance is a kind of photographic sci-fi fantasy that yo-yos between earth and sky, from aerial views to futuristic urban architectures in cities such as New York, London and Milan. Ripa's portrayal of these environments implicitly opposes the more regimented aspects of contemporary society.

Italian photographer Giuseppe Ripa's black-and-white images of the flora, fauna and architecture of aquariums are almost surreal. The animals, people and archtiectural spaces of Aquaria in this volume--Ripa's fifth photobook--capitalize on the surprising beauty of altered perception.

Milan's New Trade Fair

Published by Charta.
Text by Walter Guadagnini, Roberto Mutti, Giuseppe Ripa.

In this refined, black-and-white study, Italian photographer Giuseppe Ripa taps into an unexpectedly surreal dimension of Milan by setting up his camera in the city's new convention center, the Milan Trade Fair, designed by the internationally renowned architect Massimiliano Fuksas and selected to host the 2015 World Exposition.

Giuseppe Ripa: TibetGiuseppe Ripa: Tibet

Published by Charta.
Text by Roberto Mutti, Guiseppe Ripa.

Tibet is no longer "the only mystery the nineteenth century left for the twentieth century to explore," but it remains astonishing. Tibet depicts this country's untamed natural beauty and documents the customs of its proud people, who are struggling to maintain their Buddhist practices and cultural traditions under persecution by Chinese authorities. Tibetan civilization, with its uncommon spirituality, offers an inspiring antithesis to contemporary consumerism, and Giuseppe Ripa's images argue convincingly that these remarkable people, who write prayers on flags so that the wind may recite them, deserve a different fate than the repression they have endured for over half a century. Ripa, born in Ragusa, Italy in 1962, has been traveling the globe with camera in hand since the 1980s. His study of religious and spiritual sites around the world, Anima Mundi was published by Charta in 2005.

A Journey Among the Ruins of Angkor

Published by Charta.
Text by Roberto Mutti, Giuseppe Ripa.

Italian photographer Giuseppe Ripa's 2005 Anima Mundi tracked the artist's 10-year photographic exploration of natural and spiritual sites around the world, reflecting on the universal impulse to the transcendent from Tibet to Guatemala and Iceland to the Sahara. This new portfolio on the Buddhist ruins of Angkor, Cambodia gives readers the feeling that they are confronting not just stones but presences. There is an intense vitality preserved in the tree roots that are sinking into these abandoned temples, and the fragments of columns that block one path seem to suggest another, all beneath the many faces of Buddha, who looks on with an enigmatic smile from stone bas reliefs. This world has kept its mystery for centuries, waiting to reveal itself to the patient visitor, one ready to wait, ready to reflect; Ripa is just such an observer.

Chaos and Harmony

Published by Charta.
Essays by Paolo Biscottini Roberto Mutti and Giuseppe Ripa.

Giuseppe Ripa's ten-year photographic exploration is marked by his perception of mystery. With powerful spiritual tension, Chaos and Harmony examines the following: travelling but not wandering, pursuing one's own identity with a map of precise stages--mystery, asking, silence, dialogue and awaiting. Featured are 75 pictures taken in four continents, from Tibet to Guatemala and from Iceland to the Sahara, working through nature and the most widespread manifestations of faith (Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism) to express a universal impulse towards the transcendent.
