João Canziani transforms experiences into images, and images into experiences. A master of color and composition, he is fascinated by the way light interacts with space. João shapes the body movements of sports players and dancers into stories full of emotion and energy. A lifelong traveler, he finds inspiration in the familiarity of foreign landscapes. A natural curiosity connects him with his subjects and their environment, striking the perfect balance. Whether shooting advertising campaigns for Lyft, Delta Airlines, American Express, HSBC, Starbucks, Microsoft, and Apple; athletes for Nike, Adidas and Gatorade; reportage for the Fader, Travel & Leisure, and Afar; or portraits for Fast Company and Wired, João pushes his lens just beyond the expected. He was named one of PDN’s 30 early in his career. Subsequent awards include multiple years of American Photography and PDN’s Photo Annual. Now that’s a lot of experience, indeed.
