Francesco Loporchio is a Manchester-based photographer. His work has included collaborations with Flux Magazine and Penguin Books. In 2010, he achieved a Merit prize in the Fujifilm Student awards. Francesco has exhibited in both Manchester and London. His work explores the connections between our inherited human nature and our constructed lives.
Francesco perceives a shift in the modern psyche, from a state of being to a state of having. People own all that they require and more; false material needs are born from feelings of loneliness, ugliness and dissatisfaction. Francesco seeks to explore the resulting fragmentation to question the nature of possession and societal norms.
