Paolo Roversi by Paolo Roversi

Book Description

Paolo Roversi is known internationally for his romantic, intense, and ethereal fashion images and portraits - images that quiver on the edge of their own seemingly fragile existence. A typical Roversi photograph appears as if captured in the process - it develops on the page right before our very eyes or, depending on your perspective, might simply vanish into the ether. Since 1980, Roversi has worked primarily in 8-by-10 Polaroid, and rarely on location. "Studio" is a milestone in his burgeoning bibliography. The book, designed as a series of gatefolds, appears to be a collection of empty pages at first glance. The experience of looking is akin to that of peeling away the leaves of a Polaroid - out of the blackness, an image is revealed as if by magic. The images collected here - a self-portrait of the artist and a portrait of the place that stands at the center of his work - represent nearly two decades of work and are a mix of both the published and the highly personal: landscapes, portraits, fashion images, and photos of the studio itself.
