Luxury Design, Past & Present
Robert Polidori is a master of spatial aesthetics. His images seem quiet, yet an extraordinary power resides within them. Polidori is able to tell the story of mankind through architectural photography. He regards his subjects from a sober distance in order to find an emblematic moment and join the past and present into a single image. His photos have been shown in internationally renowned museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Musée d’Art Contemporain de Montréal, and the Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin. In addition, there have been numerous publications on Polidori’s extensive work, including a three-volume illustrated book of photographs documenting the monumentality of the Palace of Versailles, Parcours Muséologique Revisité, which won the Liliane Bettencourt Prix de la Photographie. “When I point the camera at something, it is like asking a question. And the picture that emerges is like an answer.” Robert Polidori.
