André François is a Brazilian photographer who has made photographic documentaries of Brazil and the world for the past thirty years. In 1995, he founded the NGO ImageMagica, a non-profit organization that develops projects in the education, the socio-cultural and health areas, always using photography as a tool.
Since 2005, André has developed a comprehensive photographic record in the area of healthcare and has published six books on the subject.
