The Municipality of Ravenna in collaboration with the MAR - Art Museum of the City of Ravenna from April 4 to July 5, 2020 presents the personal exhibition dedicated to the photographer Paolo Roversi.
Memories and unpublished images directly from the archive of the great fashion photographer with a section dedicated to his work for the Pirelli 2020 Calendar.
Timeless women, mysterious and fascinating creatures that evoke something romantic and disturbing at the same time in a balance between desire and discovery.
Roversi proceeds in his work by subtraction where concentration and stopping the gaze, not only on the surface of the subject, but to pay attention in trying to dig and see beyond things to go further.
Portrait artist well known for his intimate character and for his classic language, Roversi has photographed all the most famous models and movie stars. His photographs have been published internationally in magazines such as Vogue, Elle and Vanity Fair. He has collaborated with the major fashion houses, creating images for Comme des Garçons, Dior, Armani and Chanel.
Ravenna is a place of heart and soul, its hometown and privileged backdrop of the photographer's youth: an emotional relationship that is renewed with each return to which a section of unpublished shots on display will be dedicated.
