Mario Sorrenti is an Italian-born photographer who moved to New York at the age of ten. His interest in photography grew as he began to document his life through the medium. At age twenty-one Mario’s career really began when he was commissioned to shoot the Obsession fragrance campaign for Calvin Klein. Mario first became involved with i-D through stylist Jane How, as he remembers, “Jane How introduced me to the magazine, and we did some stories together with artist Shannon Plumb.” Since then, Mario has shot three covers for i-D, the last of which featured Naomi Campbell for The World Wide Web Issue in October 2007. Mario has worked with various fashion clients including Giorgio Armani, Hermes, Lonchamp, and Yves Saint Laurent. In 2001 he published a book called ‘The Machine’, a photographic study of his younger brother and fellow photographer Davide, who passed away in 1997. In addition to being held in the permanent collections at the Victoria & Albert Museum and Tate Modern in London, Sorrenti’s work has been featured in numerous exhibitions at galleries and museums worldwide. Today he is inspired by “sex and the 70′s,” and continues to be a regular contributor to i-D.
