The prince of magic

Guided by a calm sense of confidence, Patrizio Di Renzo has used his lens to immortalise fashion in Los Angeles, New York, Paris and Milan. Back in Switzerland, he explains how his book "Portraits of Illusions" helped him discover the colours of his soul.

It is a misty Saturday morning. Today at midday we have a meeting at the studio of photographer Patrizio Di Renzo, which is located in Baar, somewhere between Zurich and Zug. Finding the studio geographically turns out to be difficult, like a large-scale game of hide-and-seek, which challenges even the most resistant to acquire a GPS. However, is it not true that the most beautiful encounters are those that follow a walk through the fields? After a few wrong turns along the way, with the cloud cover lifting with a promise of dazzling springtime sunshine, it becomes clear that we are approaching the photographer's lair.

The movements of a secure and reassuring man.

It wasn’t a bad joke after all, and we find ourselves in front of a large building with enormous windows protecting the artist's studio. “Turn right as you come out of the lift on the second floor and I’ll come and meet you”, says Patrizio Di Renzo in a calm and cheerful voice over the phone. With his handshake and candid expression, he immediately exudes natural class. It is not because he refines so much beauty and moves in the grandest of circles that he goes over the top to amaze the gallery - on the contrary. He is rather one of those who cultivate mystery and modesty like so many secret gardens. Wearing an immaculate black shirt, jeans and pointed black ostrich-leather shoes, his movements are those of a secure and reassuring man.
