Ian Garrick Mason is an independent filmmaker, photographer, editor, and essayist. In 2018 he wrote and directed the short film "Commencement", and is working on a new film called "The Ravens", starring Lindsey Sagrera. He has produced short documentaries on architects and their ideas, film festivals, blockchain and finance, and intelligent cities; his recent films on urban planning philosophies and on the innovative re-use of infrastructure for parks were featured by Canadian Architect. He is a contributing visual editor at Barcelona-based urbanNext, and he has written on politics and culture for publications like The Times Literary Supplement, The Spectator, The Article, The Boston Globe, The Literary Review of Canada, and The Walrus. He is also editor of the interview-based magazine of ideas and visual culture, SCOPE.
Ian's photography concentrates on fashion and portraits — producing work with Olsen Europe, designers Raphael de Lacroix, Andrada Bodea, and Niapsou Di, magazines Elegant and Rocketlight, and agencies like The Lions NY, The Face, Elite, EMG, d1, and NEXT — as well as on the personalities of cities.
He is also an occasional rallycross driver.
