From 1961 to 1964 Maroccan-born Frenchman Barbey developed his first large-scale independant photo cycle, »The Italians«. In the tradition of Robert Frank he captured the spirit of a nation, mostly in the public space of bars, markets and streets. The pictures he took in Naples resulted in a separate book.
