Andrea Roversi (b. 1983) is a freelance photographer based in Rome, Italy. After studying Photojournalism at Scuola Romana di Fotografia in Rome, he received a special mention at the 2013 Fotografia Festival of Rome for his first body of work, Once Upon a Time, depicting life of old brothers in rural Italy. His project Dauðalogn, on rural life in Iceland, was presented at Slideluck Naples and Slideluck Tokyo 2016 and was published by Pagina99 and Io Donna and D di Repubblica. He is currently collaborating with photographic agency Parallelozero.
After being hit hard by the global economic crisis in 2008, Iceland has been the protagonist of a miraculous recovery. The island has chosen to take a step back (or forward?) returning to the land and betting on a green and sustainable economy based on natural resources. Dauðalogn is a journey through a country of sharp contrasts, but also the Bildungsroman of a child, Andry, becoming an adult in an open dialogue with the regions extreme nature.
