The Italian photographer’s signature minimalist approach to portraiture and monochrome tones reveal these birds of prey in all their majesty.
Installed on a stool or the back of a chair, the birds pose elegantly, their eyes sometimes astonished to have become subjects worthy of attention. Time seems to stand still: in shades of violet or almost old gold with a patina, the birds’ quiet presence, sudden flight and surprised gaze almost verge on the painterly.
This new series by Roversi offers a new way of looking at birds: their relationship with man, as an artistic model.
