Francesco Merlini uses both black and white as well as color to capture the offbeat and sensuous moments of his life.
From Francesco’s website:
I was born in Aosta in 1986. After a Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Design at the Politecnico University of Milan, I have devoted myself completely to photography.
After covering Italian news (with publications among the others on L’Espresso, Internazionale, Gioia, Anna, Rolling Stone, D La Repubblica, Le Monde, Tageszeitung, Wired), now I work mainly on personal long-term projects, corporate-works and editorials.
In 2012, I have been published on the book MONO vol. one alongside renowned photographers such as Roger Ballen, Daido Moryiama, Anders Petersen and Antoine D’agata.
Among many reviews on renowned photography sites, I have been featured on TIME Lightbox among the new most interesting black&white photographers.
I’m represented by the photo-journalism and story-telling agency Prospekt and since 2015 my work is represented also by the Stockholm-based Stain Gallery.
I live in Milan.
My photos have been featured on Gup Magazine, Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazine, Fototazo, Urbanautica, Lens Culture, Gomma, Augenblicke, Phases Magazine, Archivo Zine, Marie Claire Italy, Dodho Magazine, Blow Photo Magazine, Emaho Magazine, Der Grief Magazine, Dienacht Magazine, Life Framer, Il Fotografo Magazine, Shots Magazine, Unless You Will, Wayneford’s Posterous, Fotografia Magazine, One Giant Arm, Diorama Mag, Monovisions, Mimik Magazine, Pizza Magazine, Dry Magazine, Milano Città Aperta, Lamono Magazine, Fotovisura, Swide, Devora Ran, Artwort, Mutantspace.
