Most of the time, the Italian photographer prefers to work in the studio. For a long time in Paris he had to work directly in his apartment, though, in 1981 Roversi found a dedicated space at 9 Saint-Paul Rue, where he remains up to now.
Roversi's technique is based on long exposures and the use of a light brush. The master himself declares, that, above all, his secret is models, not a technique. On occasion, the photographer doesn't choose a single girl out of four hundred models, that come to the casting. Such scrupulousness and attention to detail could not but impact on the quality of the photographer's work. Roversi regards, that the picture depends more on the model, not the photographer. It's hard to find smiling faces on Paolo's pictures. Furthermore, in most instances, they are sad, but, meanwhile, beautiful. The unusual world created by Roversi is so fragile, that it seems to disappear due to the slightest breeze.
"Everything occurred by itself. When I started, there were just few fashion photographers, and it didn't require hard work for me to become one of them. For those who starting now, it is much more difficult to break into this Cast",- admitted Roversi in one of his interviews.
