Paolo Roversi’s new exhibition, titled ‘Storie’, curated by Alessia Glaviano and part of the Photo Vogue Festival, is currently hosted at the Palazzo Reale, Milan (Nov 16 – Nov 19, 2017).
Over the course of a career that has spanned more than 40 years, renowned photographer Paolo Roversi has become one of the most prominent image-makers in fashion the world over. Roversi’s signature style, facets of which include his experimentation with light and a preference for Polaroid film, is endlessly captivating, making for photographs that are painterly, idiosyncratic and immediately recognizable as his.
‘My relationship with light is very emotional, very sentimental. It’s not at all about logic or reason or something you can deal with in photographic technique, it’s really about feeling. You could even say it is a love story between me and light.’ – Paolo Roversi
