20 Sept-11 Nov 2007. This exhibition hosts the photos by one of the most refined fashion photographers of our time, Gian Paolo Barbieri. Palazzo Reale displays 140 black and white and coloured photos that outline Barbieri's artistic career.
Along with some of his well-known shots are lesser-known ones. From his first photos, in which Barbieri portrays his favourite subjects - characters of high society and of the fashion world- to his more recent pictures that belong to famous publicity campaigns. Other images immortalize the great style icons of his time: from Monica Bellucci to Audrey Hepburn, from Sofia Loren to Veruschka, from Iman to Jerry Hall. In addition, the exhibition proposes his landscapes of exotic places in the Pacific Ocean. In his long journeys Barbieri renews his art, concentrating on the world of nature, in all its shapes.
