For his series Alps, Geographies, and People, Olivo Barbieri blocks out portions of his photos with solid color.
Barbieri on his project:
The subject of Alps, Geographies, and People is how the mountain is perceived from the climbers’ point of view—its peaks and precipices, the mirages and hallucinations in its geography. In these images, everything is true. The proportions and the forms are real. Even the people and the position they’re in… Those, too, are real.
