Giovanni Del Brenna's portrait

Giovanni Del Brenna was born in Genova in 1974. He grew up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he attended French school. He later moved to Milan, Italy, and graduated in Mechanical Engineering from the Politecnico di Milano. He decided then to follow his first passion: photography.

He graduated in 2002 from the Documentary Photography and Photojournalism Program of the International Center of Photography of New York, joined Grazia Neri Agency the same year and assisted James Nachtwey until March 2004. His work has been exhibited in New York, Milan and Lisbon and Metz, and has been published in Le Monde, New York Times, GQ Italia, Condenast Traveller Italia, Vanity Fair Italia, IL, Amica, Geo and Stern among other publications.

In June 2006 Hermès Italy commissioned him the photos for the book “L’aria di Firenze”, and in 2011 EDF assigned him to photograph power-plants in Lorraine for the book "En Produisant par la Lorraine". He has been nominated New Photographer 2007 for advertisement by Getty Images.

He is now distributed by the LUZ photo agency and  published in July 2014 his book Ibidem, a project on cities that he started in 2002.
