André França is an artist/photographer. He was born in Brazil and received a M.A. in Communication and Contemporary Culture. Currently living in Salvador, Brazil, he creates his work in different cities and countries. His first photography exhibition was held in Salvador, Brazil, in 2003. Since then his work has been displayed in solo and group shows.
André França relates to photography as a means of reflection, which he carries out in a broad sense and without any given boundaries. A few concepts investigated in recent series include cultural and symbolic values present in the art world; the representation of women in the media; an intimate view of the existence of objects; free association as a principle behind image order.
His photographs are held in private collections in Austria, USA and Brazil and were published in magazines and websites dedicated to contemporary photography, such as "Lenscratch" (Los Angeles, 2011), "10x15" (Madrid, 2011), “Dodge & Burn” (New York, 2011), “Urbanautica” (Treviso, 2011), “Unless You Will” (Melbourne, 2011), “591 Photography” (Stockholm, 2012), "art photo index" (Santa Fe, 2012), F-STOP Magazine (Chicago, 2013), OLD (São Paulo, 2013), "LensCulture" (Paris, 2014) and "Saint Lucy" (Baltimore, 2014).
