Barbara Luisi – Pearls,Tears Of The Sea


“The  idea  for  ‘Pearls,  tears  of  the  sea’  came  to  me  on  the  seashore at Camogli after a night during which the waves roared  in  and  a  wild  storm  raged.  Next morning I went for a walk along the churned-up beach and was amazed. So  much  had  been  washed  up  on  the  beach,  wood, seaweed,  sea  urchins,  all  kinds  of  flotsam.  I took off the pearl I was wearing round my neck and laid it among all these mysterious treasures that had been revealed by the sea. It seemed as if it had always belonged there. Queen of the spume. The project was born.”

The series is published in a photography book with a CD of classical music performed and recorded in Vienna with her friends Jane Henschel, Christoph Prégardien, Herbert Lippert and others, and her husband, the orchestra director Fabio Luisi, at the piano.
