PAOLO ROVERSI

Guest photographer at the Planche(s) Contact festival in 2012

Paolo Roversi

Background

Paolo Roversi was born in 1947 in Ravenna, the year Dr. Edwin Land invented the Polaroid. He has exhibited all over the world (USA, Japan, France, Italy, Germany...) and published a dozen monographs.

Described as a fashion portraitist, he is considered an international star of fashion and advertising photography. His work since his debut in Paris in 1973, is a diary written day after day, photo after photo, with great love and passion. His photography is unique, uncluttered, images of stopped time, of suspended time, without being silent or inert, the most extreme expression of grace and fragile beauty.

From his studio, Paolo Roversi has imagined Deauville, the Deauville of the Belle Epoque, when Coco Chanel opened her first boutique in 1913, but also of today, with the men, women, and children, with the personalities that one can meet on the boards. "The studio is still a time to be invented. It is above all a state of mind, a way of looking and feeling. The studio is everywhere. It is a corner of my head."
