ANDREA BRIZZI was born in Florence, Italy, where he studied Architecture. He did not learn much.
Based in both Honolulu and New York, Andrea specializes in the photography of Architecture and Interiors.
Pictures are often all most people -and awards' jurors see of an architect's work.
As Sarah Williams Goldhagen has written in the New York Times, "Popular veneration of Frank Lloyd Wright rests less on his architecture than on a single picture of Fallingwater (shot on a downstream path where only the photographically intrepid venture".
Andrea thinks he has identified one reason why photography is such a
"Listen to the terms we use" he says, "Shooting, Capture, Got it!..."
What we photographers do is a sublimated form of hunting.
Patience, perseverance and adaptability are essential skills in both
hunting and architectural photography.
Construction schedules, weather and the needs of the parties involved demand flexibility and Andrea is comfortable with
the unpredictability of his work and of life in general.
In pursuit of the best possible image quality, Andrea uses a PhaseOne XT technical camera, with a 150 megapixels digital back and Rodenstock lenses. Nothing else commercially available can deliver better pictures.
Andrea concedes his clients might find a better photographer, maybe even a better-looking photographer, but not one with better equipment.
