THE ONES TO WATCH
Italian born, photographer Gio Sbriz has always been inspired by the lives of the people around him. As a child he found he was curious about passerby’s conversations, personalities and most importantly if they were happy. Sbriz's inquisitiveness has created the perfect canvas to capture portraits of his close friends, acquaintances or brief and fleeting encounters. His collections are filled with real people, living their very real lives- from people enjoying their afternoon at the park to people sleeping on train cars. His work has no particular pattern, but is shot from emotional connection or circumstances that are effecting Sbriz's life in that moment....

DD: I grew up in Birkenhead, a working-class town in North West England. My upbringing, and the people I grew up around have had a massive influence upon my photography. In homage to my youth, a large proportion of my photographs have been shot in and around my hometown, featuring family, friends and locals to the area.
NM: When did you first pick up a camera?
DD: I bought my first camera when I was 17. It was a Holga – a toy camera renowned for its light and colour leaks. Playing around with that camera was my first introduction to the process of using film. It wasn’t until University that I really began experimenting with photography.
