— Olivo Barbieri: The Dolomites

Olivo Barbieri is an Italian artist and photographer of urban environments.

These are highly detailed photographs of the Dolomites in Italy, showing a range of colours and shapes of the mountain.


Apparently Barbieri is known for a technique in which he uses “shallow depth of field via the use of tilt-shift lens photography to create . Barbieri’s technique simulates the shallow depth of field effect of macro photography by tilting the lens’s angle to the back plane of the camera, which creates a gradual blurring at the top and bottom edges, or left and right edges of the filmed image. The technique is called selected focus and the effect is that picture of an actual city looks like the picture of a model.”
