Gian Paolo Barbieri’s lost love in “Flowers of My Life”

 

In collaboration with Branislav Jankic, the great Italian photographer, Gian Paolo Barbieri has published “Flowers of My life”, a tribute to his lost love, Evar.

How to tell a story that took place 25 years ago? This is how Flowers of My Life starts.

 

Through this very personal work, the fashion Italian photographer Gian Paolo Barbieri pays tribute to Evar, his lover who died in a motorcycle accident and with whom he shared three years of his life. Divided into three sections, Flowers of My Life tells of their meeting and their burgeoning love in "Innocence", the protective bubble they built around them in "Love", and then about the death of Evar and the mourning that followed in "Death".

  

Mixing portraits of Evar, sublime shots of flowers and fragments of their relationship, Flowers of My Life plunges us into a magical and timeless world. The flowers, used as metaphors for human nature and love contribute to the stunning lyricism of the book. 

 

Barbieri asked his former protégé, Croat artist and photographer Branislav Jankic, to put his love story into words. The magnificent prose poetry inspired by the memories of the Italian photographer gives the images an even more intense dimension.

 

The publication of Flowers of My Life coincides with the opening of the Gian Paolo Barbieri Foundation dedicated to the archives of the Italian artist. Self-taught, Barbieri collaborated with Italian Vogue from 1965 and subsequently worked with the French and German editions. He also worked with Valentino, Armani, Yves Saint Laurent and Dolce & Gabbana. These photographs, influenced by the glamour of Italian cinema were exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London as well as the Kunstforum in Vienna.
