Mario Sorrenti (born 24 October 1971) is a photographer and director, whose work has included photographing John Taylor.


Mario was born in Naples, Italy, but has lived in New York since the age of ten. Self-taught, he comes from a family of photographers and artists. His earliest projects were highly personal black & white images assembled in dense diaries. These caught the eye of art director Phil Bicker and led to his first advertising commission with Calvin Klein.

His career has featured advertising campaigns for leading fashion houses and beauty brands including Prada and Yves St Laurent and his editorial work is featured in magazines such as W, Vogue and Another Magazine. Sorrenti's photographic vision is underpinned by his interest in the camera as a tool for experimentation and a fascination with the process of making images.

Additionally, Sorrenti is responsible for the photographs on several music releases, including Shakira's Oral Fixation Vol. 1, Maxwell's album Embrya and John Taylor's Feelings Are Good And Other Lies solo album. His first musical project was the photography for rock group Del Amitri's 1995 album, Twisted, and its associated single releases.
