"Site Specific Roma"
by sabine7 / May 22, 2006


Often photographers will photograph models and make them look real, but Olivo Barbieri does just the opposite. Barbieri’s aerial photography renders his sites and cities almost artificial by using a large-format camera and a tilt-focus lens. Site Specific is the name of a project recently undertaken by Barbieri, an examination of several cities from a bird’s eye view. Rome and Las Vegas are the first two in the series and will be followed by Montreal, Turin, Jordan, Los Angeles and Shanghai.
