The Factory of Matthew Barney – A Photographic Project by Ari Marcopoulus

In a project that brought together two great artists, Ari Marcopoulus presents the factory of artist Matthew Barney, in his latest photographic project. The project was shot for the second issue of Italian magazine Studio. During Pitti Uomo in Florence, we attended the opening celebration of the outdoor exhibition, which took place in a beautiful Florentine backyard. Large scale versions of the photos were exhibited in the gardens of a villa, setting a beautiful backdrop for photography. The harsh difference between subject matter and scenery of the event, was what really impressed us the most and gave a nice focus.

Photography: Highsnobiety
