Francesco Faraci (1983) is a documentary and social photographer born and based in Palermo, Italy.
He studied liberal art (anthropology, sociology) at the University of Palermo and he chose the photography as means of expressing. He learned from the great European and American photographers (William Klein, Henri Cartier- Bresson, Robert Doisneau, Robert Capa) trying to develop a personal photographic language.
His work as like nerve centre the contradictions, the existential paradoxes, the cultural crossroads of Sicily and the immigration flow.
For these reasons he travels on the roads of his homeland and of the Mediterranean countries telling stories.
His work has been featured on Il Venerdì di Repubblica, La Repubblica, Il Manifesto, The Globe and Mail, Time Magazine, Erodoto108, VICE and The Guardian.
He is also a videomaker and a writer.
In 2013 he started a long-term photographic project on the lives of children in the suburbs, Malacarne.
