Future Food


Future Food is a journey between documentation and the evolution of food. A journey that aims to respond, through emerging food technologies, to an increasingly real and imminent problem. “By 2050, feeding a global population of nearly 10 billion will require a radical transformation in the way food is produced, transformed, exchanged and consumed. To feed a constantly expanding population in a nutritious and sustainable way will require substantial improvements in global, regional and local food systems so that they can provide decent jobs and livelihoods for producers and every member along the food chain, to provide nutritious products for consumers and do so without damaging our natural resources.

Portfolio

Francesco (1987, Bari, Italy) is Bologna-based photojournalist he graduated in 2013 from the CFP BAUER photography school in Milan.

His work is focused on the concept of the individual and community. The images are the symbol of a collective identity, a starting point from which approach the different characteristics that make up a group of people. Each project analyzes similarities and differences through a form of visual storytelling. Today his work examines in depth the changes in what surrounds us, ranging from issues related to the new challenges that will characterize our future, to those concerning the environment and the adaptation of the human condition.

During the Covid-19 pandemic he founded and curated the collective COVISIONI: 40 photographers from each Italian region were invited to talk about the change in human relations for one year during the pandemic.
