古典油畫風 Paolo Roversi 

年屆七旬的意大利攝影師Paolo Roversi,鏡頭下的女性影像猶如一幅幅古典油畫,優雅而夢幻。好多人都說他的作品不像21世紀的時尚,反而更似19世紀的油畫,透過柔美的光線去刻畫人物的內在一面。獨樹一幟的風格換來的是各大雜誌與時尚品牌的青睞,已故意大利《VOGUE》總編Franca Sozzani對他褒獎有嘉,時裝設計師Romeo Gigli更形容這位多年的合作夥伴,將女性的美麗詮釋得淋漓盡致。

Irving Penn - A Visual Edgar Allan Poe

Irving Penn is visual genius of still life. His works almost mock the idea of the basic still life of a bowl of fruit, putting fruit in square shapes and using raw food in such as eggs and steak or cut up food in his “Still life with onion skin” presented in the Art Institute of Chicago. 240 more words
