Francesco Anselmi (1984) is a Milan-born photojournalist. In 2008, Francesco graduated from the Istituto Italiano di Fotografia, where he presented a photo-essay about Indian militaries based in the Kashmir area of the Himalayas. A year later Francesco moved to New York City to study at the International Center of Photography (ICP), where he earned his Masters in photodocumentation and photojournalism, graduated with honors, and was the recipient of the New York Times scholarship. Soon after finishing his studies, his photo project exposing the illegal underground martial arts fighting in the Bronx was published on The Wall Street Journal. In 2011 Francesco was invited to join the Contrasto Photo Agency; that same year he traveled to Athens, where he has been based for an ongoing project about the turbulent Greek economic crisis. Francesco has published several stories related to the crisis and its consequences in European and international publications, including the Wall Street Journal, Internazionale, L’Espresso, Sette, Io Donna, and many others. A selection of images from his Greek project screened at Visa pour l’Image, in Perpignan, France and was exhibited at Lumix Festival in Hannover, Germany. He attended the Eddie Adams Workshop and was awarded the prestigious Chris Hondros Fellowship Fund. Francesco is among the finalists of the 2014 Leica Oskar Barnack Award. He divides his time between New York, Milan and Athens.
