Bottega Veneta AW11 Campaign
Bottega Veneta enlists the prowess of renowned architecture photographer Robert Polidori to capture its Autumn/Winter 2011 campaign starring Nicolas Ripoll and Isabeli Fontana. Shot at the Palazzo Papadapoli in Venice, the campaign marks the first time that Polidori has been commissioned to photograph models.
Bottega Veneta Creative Director Tomas Maier comments “What is unusual about Robert’s work is that it both documents and interrogates. His attention to detail creates layers of meaning that extend beyond the formal beauty of his images. I was interested in seeing what would result if he turned his lens on Bottega Veneta’s design and the brand’s roots in the Veneto, specifically Venice.”
Maier continues “Robert brought this great energy and open-minded sense of adventure to the shoot, it was a genuinely exciting collaboration.”
