"Studio" assesses nearly two decades of Paolo Roversi's hugely influential studio portraiture. Within the confines of his Paris studio, Roversi photographs using an 8 x 10 Polaroid format, often allowing the images to fade before affixing them to their substrate. His long exposures at close range harness an aesthetic that dates back to the earliest days of studio photography, but with a renewed urgency that wavers somewhere between history and apparition. Stripped of the usual accoutrements of studio portraiture, Roversi's subjects push back with a vulnerable intensity that reveals as much of the photographer as of the model. The images collected here function not only as a series of individual portraits but also as a collective self-portrait of the artist and the place that stands at the center of his work. First published in 2005 in a limited edition, this new edition of Paolo Roversi's sumptuous and critically acclaimed book presents a distinctive body of work in an accessible trade edition. Paolo Roversi was born in 1947 in Italy. In 1970 he began collaborating with the Associated Press. His first assignment was to cover Ezra Pound's funeral in Venice. During the same year, Roversi opened his first portrait studio in Ravenna, photographing local celebrities and their families. In 1971, he met Peter Knapp, the legendary Art Director at "Elle" magazine, and at Knapp's invitation, he visited Paris in November of 1973, where he has remained since. His photographs have appeared in numerous publications, including French and Italian "Vogue." He lives and works in Paris.

This beautiful and thought-provoking book presents many of the extraordinary and diverse transformations that the body has endured in fashion over time and across cultures. It demonstrates that an undeniable beauty abides throughout the subtle and the radical manipulations that have occurred as part of the continuing evolution of the concept of beauty. Fashion has practiced extreme strategies to portray shifting concepts of the physical ideal. The physical areas of the body have been variously and strategically adjusted. They have been constricted, padded, truncated, or extended to achieve fashion's goal through subtle prostheses, and often, deliberate physical changes. Extreme Beauty incorporates striking examples from the past and present, from Africa, America, China, Europe, Japan, and Southeast Asia to portray many of the specific ways this has happened.

First began in 2016 thanks to the synergy between Vogue magazine and leading businesses operating in the sector, Photo Vogue Festival is a fashion photography exhibition of the highest artistic quality. This second edition of the Photo Vogue Festival is devoted to the photography of Paolo Roversi. His pictures stand out for the uniqueness of the line connecting artistic research and the valorization of fashion. Roversi is a leading photographer in the fashion world, an artist mindful of the exploration of photography's creative language. In his artistic output, contemplation of and experimentation with the photographic language of the Polaroid is accompanied by the fragility or the dreamlike visionary nature of the various subjects presented. Born in Ravenna in 1947, it was in Paris - in the early 1970s - that Paolo Roversi first fell in love with fashion photography. As a result, he began contributing on a regular basis to some of the most authoritative trade magazines, such as Marie-Claire , Harper's Bazaar Italia and, most importantly, Vogue Italia . Elected by the critics as a "painter of images", from the 1980s Roversi began working with large-format Polaroid film, taking pictures solely in his studio, with diffused and suffused lighting. This particular type of film would allow him to create and bring to life ethereal and melancholy colours that have always been a trademark of his style.
