Libretto is a composition of photographs combining fashion, still life and nudes. Together they form a magic and enchanted world of shade and light, shapes and colours, which transpires an atmosphere both dreamlike and bewitching. The emotion of a look, the sensuality of a body, the elegance of a movement leads us into the mysterious spheres of beauty. Praised fashion photographer Paolo Roversi is best known for his striking, intimate portraiture and classical visual language. His photographs occupy a realm between the past and present, resulting in imagery that feels at once progressive and familiar.His measured, classical style is made magical by his skill at manipulating light. His haunting, unguarded shots consistently strip away the facade of his subjects and draw out their raw selves, offseting fashion’s tendency to conceal and recast.
