22nd of December: Nudi

Nudi 2Every so often, here in Balham, we come across something that really stands out. This book of photographs by Paolo Roversi is a perfect example. Not only is it in lovely condition but the photography is outstanding. However, there is another thing that kept us discussing this book longer than usual, all the pictures in it are of naked women. You might think, given Roversi’s work as a fashion photographer that these pictures are titlliating but they are actually rather sad in a beautiful way. All the women are shot against a white background in monochrome so the differences between them are clear. This is a compelling book that showcases Roversi’s use of light and the human form.
