  • Paolo Roversi: Studio - Paolo Roversi [Amazon US] [FR] [DE] [UK]
    As Paolo Roversi eloquently explains, "Studio is my life, my work, my way to deal with photography. It is not only a place, a space, a theater of imagination. Studio is a feeling, a state of mind, it's a way to look for the truth. Studio is everywhere I put my camera on the tripod, it's every moment I am in search of beauty and love. Studio is my observatory, through [whose] lenses I watch the universe." In more than 100 photographs, this book tells the story of a place, a kind of work, and the way it is done. It is a kind of diary of the spirit, in which stage and back-stage and secret images mix together in a fascinating atmosphere of beauty, mystery, and magic.
