Alex Covo blames Paolo Roversi and Peter Lindbergh for ending up shooting fashion. While being young and an avid day dreamer he couldn’t help but to desire, and to even fall in love with what they created. “Not just of the women, but of the beauty and the simplicity used in achieving it. Everything I saw in their pictures was recognizable, but at the same time, it was like someone had just revealed a secret about the world around me that i didn’t know was there before,” Covo explains. Still being a day dreamer, he’s now searching out beauty as it is revealed to him through his lens.
Today the Colombian fashion photographer makes his second appearance on Ben Trovato, with his first ever exclusive feature, Vessel. A fashion film featuring Iggy Igumenova from Q Models NYC, wearing amazing designs byJulia Clancey. We sat down with Covo, asking him a few questions about his film.
