Francesco Lagnese is a discerning photographer who is moving fluidly between different disciplines of commercial photography and his personal practice. If it’s choosing the best natural light in a remote location or getting a feel for a person’s temperament, Lagnese enduringly gets the job done with natural ease. He utilizes an analogue and digital approach to image making which has resulted in several books, exhibitions, campaigns and countless editorial publications. Fluent in Italian and German reflecting his upbringing originally from the Italian Campania region, near Naples, Francesco was raised in the rural countryside of Munich, Germany.
