Debbie Bibo

agente Debbie Bibo Agency

Born in Los Angeles to a spirited Japanese mom and an unconventional American Jewish dad, I grew up in a sleepy suburb of Northern California, now the hub of the Silicon Valley. After earning a degree in Political Science at the University of California in San Diego, and working at a language school in San Francisco, I moved to Italy to teach English in 1992. While carrying on with my teaching, I enrolled in an invaluable three-year photography program at the Istituto Riccardo Bauer in Milan. My background in photography and the visual arts landed me my first job in publishing, working for the contemporary art publisher Charta, where I learned the ABCs of bookmaking and bookselling. I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with artists such as Marina Abramovic and Shirin Neshat. I moved on to work for the art publisher Skira, managing their international sales and distribution, and then for 5 Continents Editions where, among other things, I edited a series of books on design, co-published with the Museum of Modern Art of New York. After twelve years of publishing and two years of project management for a design studio, I founded my Agency in 2011. When asked what makes a good agent, my one-word reply is: vision.
