Born in Osaka Japan, Piczo first discovered photography when studying at the Musashino Art School in Tokyo. He later moved to London to further his studies at The London College of Communication. His first notable commission was for i-D magazine who were attracted by his timeless and graphic, lifestyle, fashion and portrait work. He now shoots for i-D regularly and other titles such as Jalouse, Union and Numero Homme and has collaborated with brands such as Dunhill, Sunspel, Wooyoungmi and Studio Nicholson.
What was it that drew you to the Star Wars Families commission?
I have always found family such an interesting subject to photograph. Whenever I go back to Tokyo I always shoot images of my own family… and this time, not just my own family.
