Paolo Roversi who is certainly one of my own top two or three favourite photographers is now represented in the UK by The Wapping Project Bankside and announces his first solo exhibition at the gallery. Roversi is one of the most esteemed fashion photographers currently working. His preference for work in his austere Paris studio, a backdrop of a ragged grey blanket, bare timber boards and a selection of beaten up chairs and stools providing the only set required by Roversi, has enabled photographs which; in the most minimal way, catch the heart and head of his sitters.
For his first solo exhibition at The Wapping Project Bankside, Roversi has focussed on his much loved studio and his muse Guinevere (see pictures to the right), a selection of photographs which includes material from both the celebrated Nudi and Studio series.
