Photography is not a reproduction but a revelation.—Paolo Roversi

Dior Images: Paolo Roversi is a celebration of the uncommonly symbiotic collaboration between leading international fashion photographer Paolo Roversi and the heritage couture House, painting a fascinating portrait of Dior Haute Couture creations, as seen through Roversi’s lens.

A native of Ravenna in Italy, Paolo Roversi arrived in Paris in 1973. He discovered the work of Richard Avedon and Irving Penn and went on to meet Robert Frank, Guy Bourdin and Helmut Newton. In the 1990s, he began to photograph Haute Couture for prestigious magazines such as Vogue Paris, Vogue Italia, British Vogue and W, and in the ensuing decades, Roversi has created a remarkable and poetic body of work that stands on its own as art photography.

His skilful use of Polaroid film combined with a large-format camera underpins a highly sensitive view of women, helping to create the fragile grace that makes his style immediately recognisable.

Dior Images: Paolo Roversi comprises a series of iconic pictures taken by the photographer and published in leading fashion magazines over the last twenty-seven years. The collection of images, with a preface by Italian philosopher Emanuele Coccia, features models including Naomi Campbell, Natalia Vodianova and Laetitia Casta in striking but natural poses. Paolo Roversi’s frequent use of soft focus evokes the origins of fashion photography and blurs the line between the models and the world that surrounds them. The dresses by Christian Dior and his successors—Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons and Maria Grazia Chiuri—that grace the pages seem to be infused with an inner light. In addition to archive images, the book also contains exclusive pictures from a photoshoot supervised by legendary stylist Grace Coddington featuring designs by Christian Dior himself.

Equal parts fashion monograph and photographic portfolio, this exquisite volume is a must for aficionados of photography, and fashion alike.
