Known as a photographer of urban environments, Olivo Barbieri now shifts his focus to Adriatic beaches, where vacationers dance in knee-deep crystal blue waters. Photographed from above, probably using an aerial drone, the subjects engaged in these activities seem to be unaware of the camera hovering above, and are instead focused on following the choreographed instructions of resort personnel or sports trainers, arranging themselves in lines and circles, rows and loose bunches. Bystanders, however, can often be seen looking up, or even waving at the camera. In this way, Barbieri offers an alternative portrayal of leisure and group tendencies, even when on holiday.
