Profile

“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”

Denis Guzzo

born in Vicenza, Italy in 1977 and a graduate in 2010 of the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague is an Italian filmmaker, director of photography and producer currently working on a multitude of  projects worldwide. His passion for landscape and architecture found in the Netherlands, has been a perfect field for him to develop through his love of photography. He works both on assignment and on self-initiated documentary projects which are underpinned by extensive research. The productions, exhibitions and publications which emerge from his work are characterized by a meticulously detailed form of storytelling.

In Vicenza, the city of classic master of architecture Andrea Palladio, he grew up enjoying exhibitions by contemporary masters of architecture. Fascinated by the concept of Genius Loci he developed his own research-method combining photography with cartography. These bodies of work, which explored new concept of landscape and urbanism as in Freedomland, and the origins of European culture in Wasting Mythology; are milestones that allows him to move forward into new journeys through film-making.

Denis Guzzo is currently based in Amsterdam, Tokyo and Vicenza.
