Documents on Raphael is not only a rediscovery project carried out on the five hundredth anniversary of Raphael’s death, but above all an operation of re-visioning. Stefano Graziani’s photographs explore the works of the artist from Urbino—with particular reference to his output as an architect—their transformation over time, and his own process that translated them into images. Graziani puts variation before permanence and reflects on the very concept of the restoration, the archive, conservation, display, and of course the original, that last so dear to the photographic debate, especially considering that Raphael never saw any of his works as we see them today. Graziani’s images, combined with reliable evidence regarding Raphael’s production, refer back to the most iconic classical genres of representation: landscape and still life.
