Francesca Galliani, 1962, Italy, is a fine art photographer who lives and works in New York City. At the age of 19 she moved to the United States and received a BFA at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington. She does not limit herself merely to the photographic medium and could therefore best be described as a mixed media artist. To intensify her strong images she uses the methods of painting and collage. She writes words or short sentences, adds paint and other visual objects onto the original photographs. Francesca’s work has been exhibited extensively throughout the world and has been published in a vast amount of magazines and numerous catalogues and books. The following images come from the series Transgender, Nudes and Asia.
