First edition. Since the early 1980s Paolo Roversi has worked primarily with 8x10” inch Polaroids, and rarely on location. ‘[He] is known internationally for his romantic, intense, and ethereal fashion images and portraits: photographs that quiver on the edge of their own seemingly fragile existence. A typical Roversi picture appears as if captured in the process of becoming--it develops on the page before our very eyes or, depending on perspective, it might simply vanish into the ether.’
Studio comprises of 60 black folding leaves which, when unfolded, reveal photographs from throughout Roversi’s career, both published and personal.
