‘Davide Sorrenti Polaroids. A book of instantly unforgettable Polaroid photographs taken by Davide Sorrenti between the years of 1994–1997. The perfect response to 2020. It wasn’t planned until late in October. Then the idea of one last brilliant book for December was born. Davide was so gifted. And now this perfect gift of a book.
“Almost 25 years have gone by since his passing and still the love for his persona and his work lives on. While locked down this year, I was looking at his Polaroids and reminiscing about a lifetime gone. I realized that a collection of these moments should be the next book. The second book to uncover the archive of this young man, my son, who produced all these Polaroids, photographs – and the diaries and fashion work – in such a short period of time.” (Francesca Sorrenti)’ – the publisher
A cult classic.
