Francesca Allen (b. 1993, British) is a photographer living and working in London.  Focusing on ideas surrounding youth, femininity and friendship, Francesca’s  approach is unusually sensitive.  Drawing on her own experiences of vulnerability,  the close relationships Francesca builds with her models aims to diffuse the traditional  power relations between photographer and the subject.

Most recently, Francesca spent a month in Tokyo documenting a young Japanese woman named Aya. Mixing fashion photography with candid images of Aya’s daily life, this project will be published by Libraryman in September 2018.
