Francisco Cribari is a freelance photographer who lives in Recife, Brazil. He is also a baroque music and Linux enthusiast. His passion for photography started in the late 1970s when he studied at Imagem and Ação (São Paulo, Brazil). He regularly attends workshops on photography; recent ones: portrait (with Jorge Bispo), flash photography (with Leo Neves), wedding photography (with Fernando Azevedo), street photography (with Fernando Siqueira), nude photography (with Fernando Siqueira) and fashion photography (with Ana Oliveira - SP). His main subject are people, be it on studio (fashion photography) or on the street (street photography). There is no richer subject to be explored. Our humanity is full of contradictions and nuances to be explored. As the writer Richard Powers once put it, "the purpose of art is to remind us that there are an infinite number of options that we haven't even considered yet." This is also the purpose of photography at large and that is what he tries to reflect in his photos. At large, photography is a form of art and its purpose is to remind us that life becomes more interesting and fruitful when we realize many paths diverge in the woods, that an infinite number of options lie ahead of us. "Two roads diverged in a wood, and I / — I took the one less traveled by, / And that has made all the difference." (Robert Frost) One of his photos was awarded a second place prize in a 2013 Brazilian nature photography contest ("Olhares sobre a Mata Atlântica"). In December 2013, 40 of his street photographs were shown in a solo photography exhibition at the Espaço Santa Rosa gallery (Recife, Brazil). The exhibition was entitled "Streets"reality and poetry". He has also taken part in several group exhibitions.
