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.
