Due to his poetic imagery in monochrome and beautiful color ranges, his pictures stands closer to classical painting than contemporary fashion photography. He gets his inspiration from older paintings and photography from a time when you had to use long shutter speeds. He says that Ravenna, where he grew up, with its it very foggy winters and Byzantine mosaics, has influenced his work. Paolo Roversi was born in Ravenna in 1947.His interest in photography was kindled as a teenager during a family vacation in Spain in 1964, and when he came back home he set up a darkroom. In 1970 he opened a portrait studio, photographing local celebrities and their families, and he also started working with Associated Press.
He had a chance encounter with Peter Knapp, the legendary Art Director of Elle magazine, who invited him to Paris. He arrived in 1973 and started working as a news photographer.Eventually, British photographer Lawrence Sackmann took Paolo on as his assistant. Nine months later, Roversi opened a studio of his own.
