About this series
Francesca Piqueras is a French fine art photographer born in Milan (Italy). Both her parents were artists, and she took photography when she was 13. After studying Fine Arts and Cinema, she worked in the movies industry as an editor, then decided to answer her call.
Her journey started in 2007, and took her to Bangladesh, Mauritania, Scotland, England, Peru, Cape-Verde, France, Argentina, Siberia, Italy and China, so far.
Her inner exploration of a post-industrial world gone mad, littered with rusting and decaying man-made structures reveals the brutal splendor of gigantic steel constructions – offshore platforms, shipwrecks, warlike forts – soon forgotten in the open sea, or stranded for a trip of no return on a forlorn beach.
