Giacomo Costa: A Helpful Guide to Nowhere

Text by Luca Beatrice, Daniela Ferretti.

Further adventures in dystopian and fantastical cities with Giacomo Costa, virtuoso of digitally manipulated, ultra-detailed photography

Since the mid-1990s, when he debuted his Agglomerati series, Florentine photographer Giacomo Costa (born 1970) has been creating large-format photographs that employ Hollywood blockbuster–style digital techniques to portray unreal, fantastical cityscapes straight out of science fiction.

In 2009 Damiani published The Chronicles of Time, with an introduction by Norman Foster. By turns historical and contemporary, real and imagined, the images in The Chronicles of Time could be the result of natural catastrophe or nuclear war. His latest monograph, A Helpful Guide to Nowhere, presents his latest fascinating, majestic and terrifying images of ominous yet nondidactic dystopias and cityscapes, focusing on work from the last ten years, with numerous previously unpublished images.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

CNN

Jacqui Palumbo

Costa doesn't consider his images to be prophetic. Rather, he said, they are observational and based on science that has long predicted the potential woes facing an overpopulated, globalized Earth, including the climate crisis, dwindling natural resources and pandemics...despite his desolate visions of the future, Costa strikes an optimistic tone.
