monica pozzi

Monica Pozzi started off on construction sites irritating her hardhat wearing colleagues with miniskirts, highheels and brains.
She has long since abandoned that life and given in to her addiction to all things visual and print.

She is currently the Photo Director at Swiss magazine ANNABELLE. Everything is Pozzible! Monica Pozzi graduated with a Master’s Degree in Architecture and Design from the ETH Zürich.

A late bloomer, she is an awful but nevertheless enthusiastic skater.
Find her practicing this spring at 12&A.
