Francesca Ventura

Photography - BA (Hons)

I am a fashion photographer and filmmaker based in Milan, Italy. My work explores a variety of themes, ranging from feminism to the relationship between people and their environment. I aim to capture what feels spontaneous and natural moments.

My graduate project, ‘It’s Not All About the Clothes’ looks at young and upcoming fashion designers, exploring their personalities and relationship to their designs through both video and still images alongside a zine. My multi-layered portraits of these designers aim to show the diversity and personalities behind their garments.

I work with many mediums each different to best fit the project in question, from digital high resolution cameras to handy-cams, from polaroid to medium format and 35mm analogue film.

My strengths are not only in photography and video but also in the creative direction and design of my projects to fit my desired aesthetic, thus achieving the highest quality possible both during and after capturing the images.
