Ivan Cazzola is an Italian photographer who’s been working longtime for magazines and fashion brands from Milan, London, Paris and New York;
a versatile artist working also as documentary, short film and video director, Ivan has built up his own vision and style through his life experiences and a personal eye catching intimate, original yet always ironic and provoking point of view.

Swinging constantly between the fashion industry and the natural exploration of other much closer and autobiographical realities from his own hood shooting models, artists, rock bands,cinema stars, whores and gipsies, gangstars, posh ladies or trans people. It’s all the same matter of raw beauty and present moment to catch.
The last months have seen him working on his first movie and setting up a new exhibition to show his best shots from American and European cities and landscapes.
