Dean Isidro grew up in a small coastal town in Northern California. After studying photography and art history in Italy, and then at Pepperdine University in Malibu, Dean apprenticed for five years for one of fashion’s leading photographers. During this period, he traveled the world extensively, keeping detailed sketchbooks and Polaroids of the people, countries, cities and sites he visited. After his arrival to New York, Dean honed his vision and point of view, further developing his creative craft. His approach and attitude toward photography are influenced by the feel-good days of his youth and the wanderlust of his early professional experiences.
