TPF Talks x Photobook Cafe with Francis Augusto

  • Francis Augusto
  • Sadie Gains
  • Shea-Anne Shaw

For this talk we're excited to be joined by Francis Augusto Francis is a London-based artist who was born in Angola. He moved to London at six with his mother and older brother as asylum seekers from the civil war. Inspired by his upbringing and sociology degree, Francis' practice takes an observational method of image-making, candidly chronicling facets of everyday life, capturing the moments that make us human. His works primarily centre on the themes of interaction, mundanity, and joy while adopting an ethnographic approach. Francis looks to invite the viewer into the scene, creating an intimate familiarity with the people, place, or story captured. This approach is easily identifiable in the intimacy of his artworks and commercial work.
