Gianpaolo Barbieri, Branislav Jankić: Flowers of my Life

Gian Paolo Barbieri’s new book, “Flowers of My Life,” marks the first time the photographer tells a personal story dating back 25 years. In collaboration with Branislav Jankic, his longtime protégé, Barbieri opens the doors to his private life and narrates the love story he shared with departed partner Evar. In this context, Barbieri incorporates another passion by presenting highly symbolic photographs of flowers juxtaposed with photography of Evar. Accompanied by mementos, personal notes from Evar, and poems that Jankic wrote from the perspective of Barbieri, the scene takes place in the here and now while simultaneously creating a timeless sphere. The book’s publication in November 2016 coincides with the establishment of the Gian Paolo Barbieri Foundation, dedicated to the photographer’s vast archive.
