Francesco Maria Cura' is an established fashion photographer based in Los Angeles. He's been involved in the arts since an early age and has used their several forms and medias to express himself - music, theatre and painting among many others. After having graduated from the prestigious Institute of Arts P.Toschi in Parma (Italy) he slides into photography: it will become his primary vehicle of visual expression, which varies from all levels of fashion to abstract to architecture. The purpose of this website is to offer an overview of the body of work of the photographer.
Francesco strongly embraces both the production and post-production segments of image creation. His wide range of interests has brought him to capture the most varied of subjects, concepts and environments - which are visible in the collections on this site. Cura' works at his studio in Hollywood, but also thrives shooting on location.
Having been a sort of chameleon from age one, he has also the ability to vacuum someone's emotion and inner life to then print it on paper. Many of these captured moments are visible in his internationally published pieces ---
Francesco's hunger for experimentation has pushed him into crossing styles and boundaries. There's always room to love color, contrast, monocromes, black and whites, film and digital. The choice of a particular visual syntax is never casual but always causal. This way, every project is treated with particular care, sensibility and depth. The same care goes into the relationship he has with assistants, models, make up artists and stylists.
Along with fashion projects, CURAphotography offers services to actors, dancers, athletes, musicians, designers and all those fellow artists who are in need of immortalization. For inquiries, please contact him at the phone number and/or email given below.
