I’m just now catching up on my February magazines and I was so impressed with the Paolo Roversi story in W. Harder, sharper colors and focus and overall more raw than Paolo’s typical work but still executed with his unmistakable eye. Then he follows that up with two knockout classic Roversi-esque stories in Italian Vogue and L’Uomo Vogue. My all-time favorite photographer is Bruce Weber for his idealized realism so Paolo is my second favorite because he is the exact polar opposite of Bruce’s work; Dreamy, painterly, dramatically overstyled and otherworldly.
ps. I just looked more closely at the Madonna Harper’s Bazaar. Can someone please shake Peter Lindbergh to get him off the “Hollywood Backlot” kick he is on.
