About Artist

Francesco Mussida

Francesco Mussida is an Italian fine arts photographer with a deep knowledge of silver gelatin printing. His work focuses mainly on the plant world, choosing a totally analog approach, using exclusively vintage cameras and following the methods of manual processing of film development and limited edition printing. His works on plants reflect deep attention to the way nature expresses its language through forms, movements and propagations. For these works, like In-Difesa and Native series, he chose the form of the portrait as a method of all-encompassing observation towards light, subject and air. Each portrait is made in the field with the precise intention of respecting environmental influences.
