Born in Osaka Japan. Piczo first discovered photography when studying at the Musashino Art School in Tokyo.
He later moved to London to further study at The London College of Communication.
“I came here to study English and photography. It was 13 years ago” — cutting his teeth at fashion mags Jalouse, i-D, Grind, Tomorrow, Unfolp and Union. His laid-back, effortlessly cool portrait style soon got him noticed. “A small Japanese photographer is on the same page of great photographers!” he says.
