He has made several trips to these areas in the 90s, which allowed him to explore these secluded places in, in-depth detail, resulting in these remarkable images. Barbieri manages to create, even in his photographs that have been taken outside, a “perfect” like quality, as though they had been made in the studio, yet unlike the studio, they combine the spontaneity of the people and those places, with elegance and style. The bottom row of photographs reveal Barbieri’s deep interest and love for nature and Polynesian culture, unveiling a culture in its purist form.
