Italian photographer Gian Paolo Barbieri is renowned for his work in the field of fashion and for his sensitivity towards beauty. He had the chance to travel a lot, shooting unique places and extraordinary people, along with his greatest passion: flowers. Over the years he gathered an exceptional collection of photographs, only partially exhibited on some occasions.
Very few know about the personal life of Gian Paolo, who decided to keep it to himself. A chapter in his private sphere regards his relation with Evar, a young architect and model from Bergamo who was killed in a motorcycle accident 24 years ago.
Flowers of My Life tells their love story through the pictures of flowers and the portraits of Evar captured by Barbieri's lens, together with poems written by Branislav Jankic.
