The year two-thousand-and-twenty has a graphic form that seems the repetition of a number which is, in some ways, magic, the number twenty written twice. It is the double, the dual relationship, between the story of the past and the new world, it is the time of Paolo Roversi, the photographer who will create the 2020 Calendar for Pirelli.

Often when talking about photography time is considered a technical factor, but it is not always like that. In the work of Paolo Roversi time becomes suspended and almost indefinite.

An intensity made possible through long exposures that allow for a dialogue between photographer and subject, creating an understanding that is palpable and embodies intangible but recognizable emotions, like mysticism and devotion, contemplation and ecstasy.
