Item description for Innatural by Gian Paolo Barbieri...
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 wealth of 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.”

Reviews - What do customers think about Innatural?
Quite boring and redundant Dec 15, 2005
This is without a doubt the most ill-concieved and designed photography book to be released in a number of years. Barbieri has shot a quite limited selection of average photos and has filled the book with three and four different toned variations of the majority of them. He shows the same image printed black & white, then selenium toned, then sepia toned, etc.. Quite boring and redundant.
