Giovanni di Mola is a photographer and DJ based in Hudson NY and New York City. His photography explores themes of transience and identity, capturing the intimate effects of subtle motion and natural light.

“The old master portraits as well as self-portraits inspire me in context and form. I like playing with the lines that separate gender, sexuality; the sort of roles that we play without knowing it. Each model brings their personal interpretation of their identity to a portrait session; I like peeling away at those layers, showing what I see, and hopefully sharing it with everyone else. The key to my work is capturing movement through long exposures, using only available light, composing through the lens and respecting the final image by not manipulating it.” –Giovanni di Mola
