Paolo and his ID covers

Posted March 02 2012

Paolo Roversi is on our mind with the opening of his exhibition at The Wapping Project - Bankside. His photography has made the front covers of Harper´s Bazaar, Vogue and the likes, but we especially like his ID cover of Lisa Ratliffe from June 1999. A fine example of his delicate aesthetic.

Inside the same issue, the editorial ´The Last Soldier´; quite apt following the end of the Gulf War a few months prior. Ratliffe is shot wearing military inspired Laurence Corner and Christian Dior pieces.

We want to share some of his other dreamy covers from 1990 right through to Summer 2011
