The man behind the photographer: Gian Paolo Barbieri is revealing some of the most private aspects of his personal life. Barbieri is a pioneer in fashion photography, having shot the first cover of Vogue Italia, and has since logged several major advertising campaigns and portraits of everyone from movie stars and to supermodels.
Next month, his book “Flowers of My Life” will hit stores. It is edited by Silvana Editoriale with the support of the Italian fashion company Miroglio Group and is conceived with Barbieri’s longtime protégé, New York-based eclectic artist Branislav Jankic. The book, which mixes pictures taken by Barbieri with poems written by Jankic, chronicles the three-year love affair between the photographer and the late model Evar Locatelli, who died in a motorcycle accident at age 21.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
