After attending the prestigious school Istituto Europeo Di Design, Andrea Marino quickly started working in Milan as a fashion photographer. It was there that he would meet “L’ enfant terrible” of Italian fashion, designer Franco Moschino, thanks to his appreciation for Andrea’s work
Franco introduced him to many of his Milanese friends. Among them, notable Vogue Italia’s writer and fashion icon, Anna Piaggi, and top Italian fashion photographer Fabrizio Ferri owner of the legendary Superstudio on via Forcella 13, where Andrea would assist Fabrizio, until the end of the decade, shooting advertising campaigns for clients such as Valentino. While working at Superstudio he would meet Alberto Nodolini, art director of Vogue Italia and director of Conde’ Nast’s avant-garde magazine Vanity. For the next 3 years he regularly worked for Vogue Italia with Alberto and at Vanity with art director Luca Stoppini. At the same time a partnership with runway star photographer Bruno Rinaldi would take Andrea for years to come on the road, to shoot pret-a-porter and haute couture fashion shows from Milan to Paris and Rome for magazines such as Amica, Vogue Italia and Donna.
By the early 1990’s and all the way through the decade, Andrea was a well established fashion photographer in Milan and around the world, shooting for top fashion houses and renown publications, among the many already mentioned, Bazaar Uomo.
After many years in fashion and shooting only commissioned work for high end magazines and clients such as Paul Smith, La Perla-Grigioperla, Roccobarocco, Franco Moschino and Gianni Versace. Andrea decided to take a break from it all and started traveling the “less fashionable side of the world”, South East Asia. He was determined, this time, to shoot only when compelled by love.
While traveling through many countries in South Asia, he fell in love with one, India. He has spent, on and off, the last decade of his life in that country, and the pictures that he has produced are a testament to that love.
