— Barbieri | Madagascar

Capturing the island country of Madagascar in all its primeval beauty, fashion photographer Barbieri focuses his lens on the highly unusual, disclosing unique land and sea-scapes and a rich diversity of plant and animal life, and painting vivid portraits of warriors, laborers, fishermen, women, and children.

Enhanced by the play of light and shadow, these strikingly austere black-and-white images capture a glorious variety of natural textures – from the tangled branches of an island baobab and the scales on a crocodile’s hide to the supple smoothness of a young woman’s skin.
