Photo Exhibit in Bologna

Thirty selected works of Gian Paolo Barbieri will be on display at the Forni Galleria d'Arte, in Bologna, from May the 9 until June the 30, 2009.
The Italian master's career began in 1964 photographing high fashion. He photographed the greatest designers of "made in Italy" from Valentino to Versace, Armani to Ferré, in the years in which Italian designers were prominent in the world of prêt-a-porter .
This photo of Audry Hepburn is one of my all time favorite images!
