Roger Corona was born in Marseille in 1949.

His adoptive city of Florence and his career as a supervisor with Fiat changed after an encounter with Giovanni Gastel in 1984 when he moved to Milan and began his profession as a freelance beauty photographer, working for Italian and international magazines and in advertising. He combines his advertorial work with a deep commitment to photographic research. Corona was a jury member of the Miss Italia beauty contest in 1995, 1996, and 1997.

From 1999 to 2001, between Milan and Paris, he worked for women’s magazines and advertising agencies. From 2002 to 2004, the Alpitour company entrusted him with the photographic restyling of its holiday resorts around the world. In this work, the beauty of the wild and primordial nature becomes the real protagonist.

In 2017, Roger Corona participated in the MIA Photo Fair, where he presented the monograph PATTERN GEOMETRICO edited by Maurizio Rebuzzini, in which nudes are a more intense portrayal of the body's forms and lines. In 2018, Corona participated in the MIA Photo Fair, where he presented the digital book "Corpo e Anima – L'arte nei dettagli" edited by Nicoletta Salvatori and published by Simonelli.

LES FEMMES DE LA LUNE, curated by Giuliana Scimé, a four-handed initiative with the sculptress Vivide Mantero, who works with iron. This is a union of photography and sculpture where an imaginary thread leads us back to the ancestral woman.

As a photographer, Roger Corona created campaigns that have become part of the collective imagination. These include the famous Fiorucci campaign (1995), a naked butt of a girl dressed only in pink plush handcuffs, or the A. Testoni campaign, winner of the International award in New York for best advertising of the year (1997). Corona has worked for Italian and international companies including Estée Lauder, L’Oréal Paris, Wella, Ferragamo, Gai Mattiolo, Alviero Martini, Rodo, Diego dalla Palma, Triumph, Lovable and Zepter International.
