What did Isaak have to offer?

I was born in San Francisco in 1990. In 1992 my parents moved to Como, Italy and being just 2, I wasn’t consulted. I worked my way through the Italian public school system, at first with a concentration in classical music and then in a high school program concentrating in Spanish language and literature.

I was born in San Francisco in 1990. In 1992 my parents moved to Como, Italy and being just 2, I wasn’t consulted. I worked my way through the Italian public school system, at first with a concentration in classical music and then in a high school program concentrating in Spanish language and literature. It was at that time that I began to inherit my father’s hand-me-down cameras.

While working as a volunteer teacher in India in 2007 and then in Tanzania in 2008, I became interested in documentary photography and realized that photography could be a powerful tool to raise public awareness about social injustice and to serve as a witness to the stories that deserve our collective attention. In order to explore and test my convictions, I moved to New York in 2009 to attend photography and imaging classes at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts.

In 2010, I interned for seven months at the studio of the acclaimed photojournalist James Nachtwey. In the summer of 2011 I returned to India to help document the work of Peace Child India, an organization concerned with providing better living conditions and education to youths from disadvantaged communities.

I am currently freelancing in New York, working at the International Center of Photography and pursuing personal documentary projects.
