Wild and Beautiful

Italy’s GIAN PAOLO BARBIERI has been a master photographer for half a century. Best known for capturing Audrey Hepburn, Angelica Huston and Iman in some of the most famous fashion photographs of all time, his editorials have been published widely in Vanity FairVogue ItaliaVogue Paris, and GQ, among others.

Clic Gallery in New York is currently featuring Barbieri’s American gallery debut, EXOTICA: a selection of his photographs that present the wild and beautiful of Madagascar, Tahiti, and the Seychelles in a manner that is at once sumptuous and surreal. Barbieri’s ability to capture the incredible detail of frangipani blossoms and banana plants in luscious duotone images, compliment the almost other-worldly juxtaposition of sea creatures and sculpted, inked bodies.

EXOTICA is on display through July 25, 2010
