Francis Minien is a British photographer based in New York City. An Associate of Britain’s Royal Photographic Society (ARPS), Francis holds an MA in Photography (2005) and a BA in History and Media Studies (1999), both from De Montfort University in the UK. It is primarily these disciplines that inform his artistic practice today.
Displaying a keen curiosity regarding the nature of photographic representation, Francis employs photography to pose questions about the ways in which his chosen medium works; specifically, its relationship with external reality. By extension, his photography often makes more general inquiries into the nature of that reality, considering whether the actuality of human existence is directly accessible through subjective experience.
Francis splits his time between his studios in Hawley, PA and Brooklyn, NY.
