One of Olivo Barbieri's "Site Specific" Photos:
Italian photographer Olivo Barbieri has recently been exhibiting his series "Site Specific", which are large-scale, aerial views of ancient architecture in places such as Rome and Jordan and modern architecture in L.A., Shanghai and Las Vegas. The entire series manages to skew scale and reality— the photos look like they are images of toy models.
Barbieri accomplishes the look by working from a helicopter about 400 feet in the air (which is approximately the height of my office on the 41st floor) using a large-format camera with a tilt-focus lens.
I love this image of the Coliseum but I have a feeling Bri would prefer this image of The Queen Mary.
