With an Introduction by Gilles De Bure

Logo markA Thames & Hudson book


The newest title in this affordable photography series highlights the work of Paolo Roversi.

Born in Ravenna, Italy, in 1947, Paolo Roversi discovered photography at the age of seventeen on a family holiday. A chance meeting with photographer Peter Knapp led him to move to Paris in the early 1970s, where he first encountered the world of fashion. His career truly began when he became an assistant to Laurence Sackman, who taught him the photographer’s craft.

Now based in Paris for more than thirty years, Roversi is famed for his use of large-format Polaroid film to capture images of ethereal beauty, vulnerability, and romanticism. Working in evocative monochrome or carefully articulated color, he collaborates regularly with the world’s top supermodels and designers, and has photographed for many leading fashion magazines and international ad campaigns.

Endorsements & Reviews

“Many images of ethereal beauty—and vulnerability—captured in unexpected places. . . . More emotional than the images [Roversi] produces for leading fashion magazines.” — The Photo Review
