WWD reports that Italian fashion photographer Paolo Roversi will host his debut exhibition at debut an exhibition during Photo Vogue Festival in Milan. Roversi's "Storie" exhibit consists of nine themes that are "guided by a certain freedom and by an emotional attitude.” The featured works are reportedly from various points in the photographer's career and include private portraits, nudes, experimental shots, and fashion images.

The most exciting part about Roversi's exhibit is that he dedicated one of the rooms to Rihanna and will have unpublished photos of her on full display. Roversi previously photographed the global pop star for the cover of i-D i magazine in 2015 which led to them collaborating on promotional materials for the whole ANTI release campaign in 2016. He shot the iconic black and white images that were used as the single artwork for "Bitch Better Have My Money," "Kiss It Better" and "Needed Me."

Roversi also told WWD that he's working on another exhibition that is dedicated to Naomi Campbell. He's reportedly planning on launching that exhibit at 10 Corso Como’s Sozzani Foundation in February 2018.

"Storie" is officially open to the public at Palazzo Reale starting December 17. For those that can't make a trip out to Milan anytime soon, Roversi has partnered with publishing company Skira on a book that will contain all of the images from the exhibit.
