Denis Guzzo (b.1977) is an Italian filmmaker, photographer and producer currently working on a multitude of projects worldwide. He works both on assignment and on self-initiated documentary projects, underpinned by extensive research.
After many years devoted to visual storytelling captured on large format negatives he is now embracing the art of filmmaking.
With his works he strives to address both local and global issues through a sampling of environmental, social and human conditions. These explorations allows him to create catalysts of cultural reflexivity and articulate his reflections on what we could be but have perhaps never considered.
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).
Denis Guzzo has been working with or for: Archis, Bureau Europa, cASLa, Dutch Ministry of Infrastructures, Dutch Ministry of Environment, Eye Film Museum, Monnik, Save Industrial Heritage, Stroom, Superuse Studios, T.U. Delft, TNO, ZUS zones urbaine sensible, among many others.
