Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines
Francisco is a Spanish-Filipino photographer based in Manila. His wide range of editorial and commercial work includes covers for Travel + Leisure US, stories for Conde Nast Traveler, Monocle, Elle Décor France, Surface, New York Times Travel, Grid, and images for the Philippine Department of Tourism’s It’s More Fun in the Philippines campaign. He also hosts a TV show on Philippine travel photography titled What I See, and is currently at work on long-term coverage of the typhoon Haiyan post-disaster scene and recovery efforts for the World Health Organization. His images are most notable for their sensitive and intelligent approach to the subjects—often the people and places that he encounters during travel–but more importantly, to the larger stories behind them.
His photographs have been exhibited in Manila Contemporary, the World Health Organization, and at 1335 Mabini. He attended the Brooks Institute of Photography and holds a BA in Anthropology and Communications from Goldsmiths University, London.
