Paolo Roversi Fotografie

23rd february 2000 - 19th march 2000

Born in Ravenna on September 25, 1947, Roversi was the first photographer to use Polaroid in the 20 x 25 format, opening up the path to new forms of experimentation characterised by highly expressive use of intense, incisive light.
His first camera was a Ferraniaflex 4.5 x 6 which he was given for his first communion. But it was during a trip to Spain at the age of 17 that Roversi contracted the “disease” of photography. He started taking photographs with his uncle’s Leica III and set up a darkroom like a true amateur photographer.
At 20 he was working as a reporter for a photo agency; in 1970 he opened his first studio in Ravenna, producing still lifes and portraits.
