Olivo Barbieri: Site Specific

Published by Aperture
Introduction by Christopher Phillips.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Olivo Barbieri: Site Specific</I>.Site Specific is a summary of Italian photographer Olivo Barbieri’s (born 1954) ten-year project to record the world’s cities in aerial photographs. On the one hand, the book offers remarkable documentation, by one of today’s most thrilling image-makers, of 25 cities throughout the world. On the other, it is a narrative of Barbieri’s ever-evolving approach to photography and his thoughts about the nature of the medium. Presented chronologically, the book begins with the distinctive “tilt-shift” photographs of Italian cities with which Barbieri first established his reputation, and which launched a popular stylistic movement for selective-focus photographs. As the series continued, with portrayals of cities all over the world, Barbieri introduced other devices and approaches to “distort” perceived reality--such as playing with color, registration and the deletion or discoloring of particular details--to dramatic effect. The result is a remarkable photo essay about twenty-first-century urban space and about photography itself. Stunningly designed and presented in a luxuriously large format, the book is introduced by Christopher Phillips.

Olivo Barbieri: Site SpecificFeatured image, "Montreal" (2004), is reproduced from Site Specific, Aperture's new 10 year survey of aerial photographs by Italian photographer Olivo Barbieri. Pei-ru Keh reviews the book and interview's Barbieri in Wallpaper: "The book's captivating dynamism is down to Barbieri's unique take on the tilt-shift technique. From his aerial vantage point, he takes recognizable city landmarks and reorients them in a magical light. The infrastructure and architecture are accentuated to such a degree, they take on an intense hyperreality, inducing newfound awe." continue to blog
