Francisco Faustino

Country where you live:

City where you live:

Statement : 

This project focus on the use of frame burn and flashing film rolls to develop photographs, that show the duality between the cold rational energy of the physical world and the warm fantasy of what it means to daydream. Wandering through the small streets of Lisbon has filled my mind with the need to capture the loving energy of what it means to be Portuguese, in a way that transcends the white of the cobblestone streets and brings us to a state of colorful hallucination. Daydreaming was and is my most used method to reconnect to the city that I was born in but not raised-Lisbon. To rekindle the spark that I once felt in the city when I was just a child, now through my adult lens.
