Olivo Barbieri: Site Specific

Olivo Barbieri is one of the most famous photographers on the Italian contemporary scene. His lecture, Site Specific, focuses on a project he began in Rome, before moving on to Amman, Jordan; Las Vegas, Nevada; Los Angeles, California; Shanghai, China  and many other places. He achieves the distinctive look by photographing from a helicopter using a tilt-shift lens—a method, he says, that "allows me to choose what I really like in focus: like in a written page, we don’t read [it as an] image but one line at a time."
