Joining us at November’s Nicer Tuesdays was photographer Francesca Allen, a creative who has had a fast-paced career full of memorable moments, of which she creates just as many behind the camera as she does in front of it.
Taking us through her career to date, from her graduation project Girls, Girls, Girls – which went on to be exhibited at The Photographers’ Gallery a year later – through to her first book, Aya, Francesca explained how her love of taking photographs stems much more from the conversations that go alongside it, rather than the moment of actually taking the shot.
“I create and curate intimate moments with people I’ve just met,” explains Francesca during her talk, touching on how personal the medium is to her, and how this should be the case, considering she utilises the medium as a way of “self-exploration of who I am but also who I want to be.”
