Elle issue (Italy) still on the shelves but it came out about a month ago in Milan (Italy) during the fashion shows (italian) and on the cover it shouts: 99 reasons to be happy in Italy.
Amongst them surely it won’t say to be a fashion photographer (italian).
For a matter of fact below here (which I’ll mash up a little not to give them some useless advertising) are all the photographers all foreign and featured on this issue:
Paulo Suxxh (doing a still life on white background!)
During the same days (if it wasn’t clear, the week during which the italian fashion was unveiled to the world here in Milan, Italy) there was an opening at the regional gallery of the exhibition titled “beauty interpreted by the best photographers from the thirties till today”, sponsored also by the City of Milan (Italy).
In this exhibition there wasn’t one italian photographer.
Gianpaolo Barbieri, for example? Not there.
