Danilo Montanari, 2014. 20 pp., color and black-and-white illustrations, 8x10½".

Publisher's Description

Italian photographer Olivio Barbieri is known for his use of tilt-shift lens photography, which simulates a shallow depth of field and makes the urban environments and landscapes he pictures seem miniaturised. For his latest series of images, presented as an accordion folio, he travelled to Mont Blanc by helicopter to make large-scale, hyper-focused vistas of the treacherous mountain and the climbers upon it. Although the images may seem manipulated, Barbieri insists that they are not. The proportions of the peaks, rocks and expanses of snow are real, and the people and their positions are also real. Deftly, he captures the mirages and hallucinations of the mountain.
