About Francisco Cribari
Francisco Cribari is a freelance photographer specialized in street photography and portraits who lives in Recife, Brazil. He is also a baroque music and Linux enthusiast. His passion for photography started in the late 1970s when he studied at Imagem and Ação (São Paulo, Brazil). More recently, he studied street photography with Thomas Leuthard (three courses), among others. He was also a student in the Masterclass on Portrait Photography taught by Brazilian photographer Marcio Scavone. His main subject is people, be it on the studio (fashion photography, portraits) or on the street (street photography). There is no richer subject to be explored. Our humanity is full of contradictions and nuances to be explored. As the writer Richard Powers once put it, "the purpose of art is to remind us that there are an infinite number of options that we haven't even considered yet." This is also the purpose of photography at large and that is what he tries to reflect in his photos.
