Paolo Roversi | The Wapping ProjectPublished on MondayThe legendary fashion photographer opens up an east London exhibition featuring work from his ‘Nudi’ and ‘Studio’ seriesWith a career that spans four decades, Paolo Roversi has become one of fashion’s most revered photographers. He has shot campaigns for the likes of Valentino, Christian Dior and Cerruti, and since 1983 he has produced multiple covers for both Vogue and Vogue Italia. His portraits have a distinctive identity, evocative of classical painting and photography. It is an intense moment, between you and me. I want you to give me a lot. You live a special moment together. Without this, the picture is boring. If you don’t live that moment together, the picture will never be strongThe ethereal, yet haunting beauty of his subjects is captured by the delicacy and refinement of his style. This month, his new solo exhibition opens at The Wapping Project – Bankside. The show includes images from his series ‘Nudi’ and ‘Studio’, and a selection of his work with muse Guinevere Van Seenus, which illuminates his command of the portrait form.
