Fashion: Paolo Roversi – Photographer
Paolo Roversi is one of my favourite photographers, his images are more like pieces of art as he’s able to capture a romantic and mystical mood in a serious and beautiful way. Italian born, his interest in photography started when he was very young and by 1970 he was working with Associated Press News Agency. By1971 Roversi had met Art Director Peter Knapp of Elle Magazine and followed him to Paris. Roversi started working as a reporter which soon led to his interest in fashion photography, he then became assistant to British photographer Lawernce Sackmann.
Roversi created a style of his own by shooting on 8×10 Polaroid, and since the mid 80’s he’s had many Exhibitions, Books and Awards honouring his work. Paolo has collaborated with many well known Fashion Designers and Magazines including Vogue, Elle and Vanity Fair.
