Paolo Patrizi started as an assistant to other photographers in London. Freelance work started to trickle in and rose to a flood after he won several international awards. Paolo specializes in documentary photography and most of his series explore the underlying conflict between rapid economic growth and ancient culture. In his series “Sumo”, he explores the ancient art of sumo wrestling and the scandal erupting in the sport in recent years.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
