“I decided I wanted to be a photographer at 16,” said Lorenzo Bringheli, now 32.

After graduating from high school, Bringheli started assisting a number of Italian photographers before going solo at age 20, when he got his first fashion editorial assignments from Italy’s La Repubblica weekly magazine, along with Vogue Italia and L’Uomo Vogue.

“Then, Franca [Sozzani] suggested that I check out the American market, so I moved to New York, where I stayed for 10 years, but I continued to work in Europe at the same time,” said Bringheli, who has also collaborated with Vogue Japan, Esquire and the British Exit magazines, as well as shooting campaigns for fashion labels.

Describing his style as “graphic and essential,” Bringheli got passionate about working on photography books.

“They allow you to work on a deeper level than fashion editorials, which are destined for rapid consumption,” said Bringheli, who, as well as developing publishing projects with Dolce & Gabbana and Luxottica, also took the pictures featured in Tod’s “Italian Portraits” tome.
