About The Work

Since 2004, Olivo Barbieri has been developing a series of large-scale aerial photographs on major sites in Rome, Las Vegas, Shanghai, Montreal, Los Angeles, Amman, Florence, Milan, and New York. Utilizing a large format camera with a tilt and shift lens, Barbieri deftly renders the grand scale of these major metropolises to mere models of themselves. His bird’s eye perspectives on some of mankind’s greatest architectural achievements, such as the Colosseum seen here, have a mesmerizing quality, simultaneously evocative of our infinitesimal size as individuals yet illuminating of the majesty of our civilization’s progress as a whole.
