Bruno Barbey's The Italians is one of my favourite photography books. The black and white photographs capture a diverse, slightly eccentric and wonderfully human Italy Barbey encountered during his travels across the country in the 60s. Here, the emphasis is on spontaneity and honesty rather than gimmicky angle and photoshop techniques, but the visual impact remains strong and engaging. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0810905582, Hardcover)

In the early 1960s, internationally acclaimed photographer Bruno Barbey sought to capture with his camera the spirit of Italy. Here, his endearing modern commedia dell'arte of beggars, priests, nuns, carabinieri, prostitutes, and mafiosi— archetypal figures whose exotic charms helped to make the films of Pasolini, Visconti, and Fellini so popular—join with the subtle pen of best-selling novelist and essayist Tahar Ben Jelloun to reveal the essence of Italy in that period. The result is an evocative word-and-picture portrayal of the Italians.
