Graduating with a degree in architecture from Milan Polytechnic in 1977, Paolo Rosselli began his career in architectural photography under the guidance of art historian Arturo Schwarz, documenting temples throughout India. Since then his approach to architecture through photography has seen him focus on contemporary architecture, such as his work with quarterly magazine Lotus, and on modern architects such as Giuseppe Terragni. Rosselli has exhibited works at the XLV Venice Biennial (1993, 2004 and 2006 respectively) and has lectured in photography at both Milan Polytechnic and Goldsmiths, University of London. With a back catalogue of more than 20 books published Rosselli’s most recent work is Sandwich Digitale (Quodlibet, 2009). He is currently working on a photography and text project documenting the changing world of India. Rosselli lives and works in Milan.
