About the Photographer
My name is Francesco Vincenti. I was born in Comiso in 1990, a small village in the south of Sicily.
From the very beginning I have been growing up and living in a world rotating around photography based in my parents’ studio.
This way I developed a strong passion for photography which has been growing stronger every day due to my deep dedication and devotion.
When I was four years old, I took my first picture which happened to be of my grand-parents. It was in this special moment that I realized that, from that point on, photography would accompany every moment for the rest of my life.
In the subsequent years, I have been studying, refining and intensifying the technique of this form of art by helping out my father in his daily job as a photographer.
After having finished high school, I decided to move to Milan in order to follow a childhood dream that I have always wanted to make come true: the dream of working in the world of fashion.
After having assisted photographers, I have started various collaborations with fashion agencies by carrying out photo shoots for them. Therefore, I have started to look at the outside world and everything around me in a different way which encouraged me to understand and expand my own concept of photography.
Photography for me is art, it’s emotion. It’s the means that allows an artist to communicate and show that which he or she sees and feels with mind and heart. It’s creating that image you have from your point of view, designing it by means of light and shadow.
In my opinion, being able to represent and describe something by using a woman’s grace and charm is simply magnificent.
At present, I am based in Milan and I collaborate with various Italian and international magazines for editorials and also with fashion designers for commercial campaigns and catalogues.
