franco franceschi

Franco Franceschi is a very much appreciated photographer. His interests sweep from fashion to architecture; from landscape to yachting. Yet his images continuously possess the common characteristic of focussing on the particular without distracting from the whole.
He was born in Bologna, Italy and after having had the experience of being an assistant in a painter’s studio he left university and dedicated himself to photography. He began as a travel photographer and then in the late seventies he opened a studio specialising exclusively in fashion and portraits. His fashion photography is characterised by a strong emotional impact coupled with perfect fusion between the person shot and the enviroment surrounding her.
He is fundamentally a fine art photographer and within the world of fashion he has proposed images that at times were in disaccord with the trends of the moment whilst still remaining elegant, sophisticated and sensual. Having intuited that fashion photography could never have a precise style of its own thanks to its being overly subjected to imposed rules, he began creating his own style, drawing inspiration from the great cinema classics and from paintings of the nineteen hundreds (specially Methafics Age). His photos have been published in more than 2,500 pages and on dozen of fashion magazine covers
From the turn of the Century he dedicates all his time to personal research towards producing images free from constraint where he can express his mode of perceiving the world that surrounds him and the environment where he lives.
In his architectual photos he carried out an investigation into the nineteen hundreds from which he published a monograph. At the present he is carrying out details of architectonic design for naval construction (especially regarding large yachts), modern Architecture, Nature.
These images have been on show at personal exhibitions in Italy (Bologna, Castellina Chianti, Lilliano, Zola,), Argentina (Santiago del Estero), Bulgaria (Sofia), Denmark (Copenhagen), France (Grenoble, Lille), Lithuania (Vilnius, Nida), Croatia (Osijek), Slovenia (Izòla, Lubjana), Perù (Lima), Poland (Warsaw) and the U.S. (San Francisco).
In 2004 he was awarded the ‘Special Prize’ by the Jury at the Orvieto International Festival for his monograph on architecture from the nineteen hundreds. In 2008 and 2009 he received the Art Majeur Silver Award.
Being profoundly convinced that art should have no boundaries at present he wishes to move away from Italy so as to gain professional experience in other countries.
