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.
