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. About the author Paolo Roversi was born in 1947 in Italy. He currently lives in Paris, photographs for Harper's Bazaar, and has led numerous publicity campaigns for such illustrious clients as Christian Dior, Cerruti, Valentino, Yves Saint-Laurent, and Comme des Garçons.
