There is something subtly provocative about Mike Piscitelli’s photographic works. Instead of ramming guns and naked women into each of his shoots, he uses them sparingly to make a statement rather than to inspire drool and wagging tongues.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Mike Piscitelli went straight from school to working as an assistant on pornographic movies. There his interest in images and film grew to a point that led him to move to New York for photography opportunities.

Since then, Mike Piscitelli has worked for such magazines as Dazed & Confused, Another and ID Magazine as well as shot celebrities such as Bar Refaeli, Oliver Stone and Maroon 5.
