Francesco Gaù was born and raised in Rome. After graduating in Cinema and Media Studies at Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia, he began to gain experience working in the film and television industry between Rome and Milan. 

It was during this period that he developed his love for photography and light design, starting to explore all areas of this magical world as a selftaught photographer.

Ambition and commitment to work led Gaù to a long series of adventures, collaborating with some of the leading national and international fashion magazines and all the most renowned brands, as well as shooting entertainment and fashion personalities.

With his gaze Gaù wants to represent in all its shades the desire for redemption of an emotionally more fragile society, of a generation often voiceless in the midst of turmoil, through intimate images and sets tending towards allegory, revolving around the central figure of women.
