Book Description Innatural is about fragments of tropical nature, a distinguishing subject of Gian Paolo Barbieri's research, carried out all over the Southern Hemisphere, from Madagascar to the Seychelles, from Polynesia to Tahiti. This deluxe book, consisting of 50 photographs sumptuously printed and created with large negatives, is organized in single pieces, as well as in "diptychs" and "polyptychs," proposing different variations on the same subject. The selection reflects the wealthof the references of the photographer, who constantly casts a glance at the history of art, in particular to Gauguin. Barbieri is an insatiable worshipper of visual effects, a skilled creator of compositions that are as refined as they are artificial, celebrating detail and appreciating each trifle while denying any possible "truth."
