Paolo Roversi

Paolo Roversi is an Italian born photographer. Roversi was assistant to British photographer Lawrence Sackmann who not only taught but inspired Roversi, one piece of advice was "your tripod and your camera must be well-fixed but your eyes and mind should be free”. His work consists of mainly portraits and female subject matter. I am drawn to his black and white work, particularly Roversi's portrait of Russian model Natalia Vodianova. There is a gorgeous sense of depth, mystery and angst portrayed through her eyes in this shot.

Below are more portraits from Roversi, who uses prominent women in fashion such as models Kate Moss and Guinevere van Seenus and women from the screen such as Tilda Swinton and Vanessa Paradis.
