Taschen, 1997
Gian Paolo Barbieri

Published by Taschen in 1997, Gian Paolo Barbieri captures the island of Madagascar in all of its primordial beauty revealing unique landscapes and a rich variety of animal and vegetable life, creating vivacious portraits of warriors, workers, fishermen, women and children. Sumptuous and suggestive, the duotone photos exploit the light of the tropics and detaining themself in the details, canoes like orchids, crocodile trees, though shot in black and white; they are charged with color like the fishermen and the farmers.
