Emanuela Franchini was born in Genoa, Italy and moved to London in 1999. She began to experiment with the art of self portraiture focusing on everyday life and the interaction with mundane objects in 2005. In July 2007 her passion began to pay dividends and her image entitled Cheap 70’s Porn ”, a self portrait, was used by the New York band The Strokes for the homepage of their website. In a tide of interest that ensued, she delighted in the 2008 Sony World Photography Awards selecting her image “Low Tide” across their website to advertise the photographic award. She is currently working on her ongoing self portrait project “The domestic life of electrical appliances and other stories” and also continuing the collaboration with Cristina Cocullo on a new project.

Some artists use pure imagination to paint their artworks, others may prefer to create art by using a real life model as reference for the anatomy. What if these abstract models were real people?” – Flora Borsi (previously blogged)
