Zizzo's passion for photography has been lifelong. Inspired by Anselm Adams black and white landscapes photographs, he created in 1997 his own dark room and began experimenting. In 1998 he moved from his home town Ravenna in Italy to Paris where he started nurturing interest for the traditional large format photography, and began shooting seriously in with a large-format view camera.
The large format allowed him to capture the panoramic views and the perspectives of the architecture. He was captivated by the sharp, diverse and ever changing landscape of Dubai, New York, Shanghai and later Hong Kong. He learned to explore the streets from every angle, scaling to the top of construction sites to capture skylines, architectures and melee of everyday life.
