Born in Djakarta, Indonesia and raised in Tokyo, Tel Aviv and Washington, D.C., Born in Djakarta, Indonesia and raised in Tokyo, Tel Aviv and Washington, D.C., Francesca chose photography to preserve memories that she believed would be lost if not documented through the lens of a camera. She attended Duke Ellington School of the Arts and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from the Rhode Island School of Design. After working for DC’s prominent Scurlock Studio, she became a press photographer with the Associated Press, United Press International, the Army, Navy and Air Force Times, the Fairfax and Alexandria Journals, the Atlanta Constitution Journal and several newspapers in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Francesca eventually worked as a photographer in Atlanta, Georgia while also becoming an Artist-In-Residence for the state of Georgia as well as the cities of Atlanta and Washington, DC. Exhibitions include “Lay of the Land” at The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, Duke Ellington School of the Arts, Friendship Gallery, the ArtFactory, and Howard University. She currently has work on view at the Atlanta Life building and the West End Performing Arts Center, both located in Atlanta.
