Francis Cloake (Franny) is a Byron Bay based photographer. After taking time out to raise a family, she returned to photography in 2018 with the fine art photographic series, Surf. This collection of fine art photographic limited edition prints has sold to collectors in Australia, Hong Kong and Los Angeles.
Francis undertakes an all-consuming process of conceptualising, sourcing and digitally manipulating her subjects and images in Surf. She proves herself an artist capable of transforming well-known subjects into objects of evocative beauty and stillness. Original, deliberate creations, Francis captures moments in time on Australian surf beaches in this series of works.
