Denis Guzzo Portrait


Photography

“Landscapes have a language of their own, and the lens allows us to capture their voice. Images are like echoes of that voice, narratives that fade in time.”*

The condition of our common landscapes mainly depend on what we have decided and done in our cities. Urbanization and the cultural landscape are complex expressions of both human aspirations and failures. Everything is connected by visible and “less-visible” flows. It is for this reason that he spent years researching the field of architecture and urbanism while developing as a visual storyteller.

In his photographic projects Denis has been focusing on the exploration and documentation of landscapes: traces and perspectives of our civilization; outlining human geography, environmental and geo-political themes. His work has been exhibited internationally and published in magazines such as Volume, Icon, Korean Landscape Series, Metropolis M; in many books and on books covers.

His photographs appear in both private and public collections as limited edition art prints (5 + ap 2) and is being represented by Van Kranendonk Gallery, Te Hague.
