11 January - 8 March 2014

Italian fashion photographer Gian Paolo Barbieri presents a selection of classic portraits of stylish women, in black and white and colour. Photographs of international icons include Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren and Monica Bellucci. 

Gian Paolo Barbieri was born in Milan in 1938 into a family of fabric wholesalers. He was influenced by cinema at an early age. Barbieri has a sublime aesthetic taste and is a master of black and white photography.

In 1965 he joined Italian Vogue and produced the cover of its first issue. His work for the Italian, French and American editions of Vogue led on to publicity work with the great fashion designers Valentino, Armani, Yves Saint Laurent, Ferré, Versace and Dolce & Gabbana.

Gian Paolo Barbieri is considered one of the best international fashion photographers in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. Working in close collaboration with fashion designer Valentino he was responsible for innovations in modern fashion advertising campaigns.

An exhibition of Barbieri’s work was curated by the English fashion photographer David Bailey, shown at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Kunstforum in Vienna. His work is also exhibited in galleries and at arts festivals.
