Irina Lis Costanzo

Sensitive, determined, insightful, and inspiring, Irina Lis Costanzo is also known as the “Lara Croft of photography”.

Irina Lis Costanzo is much more than a successful artist behind a camera lens. She is a passionate seeker of the perfect frame, a believer in simplicity and grace, and a person with an eye for detail that goes way beyond the obvious.

She considers herself an explorer of beauty and an artist behind the lens. At 14, she borrowed her father’s camera to shoot a friend and discovered her passion for photography. She has collaborated with a plethora of magazines such as Vogue Italy, Germany, Numèro, Harper’s Bazaar, and Elle in several countries. After 20-odd years on the job, she has her own fan club and a well-established reputation for excellence, reliability, and a unique vision. She is also a woman of style as well as essence.

Irina Lis Costanzo states that one of her significant missions is to raise awareness of a sacred role of a woman in life. Therefore, together with creating captivating photos, she fills them with profound messages.
