Francis Cloake is a Byron Bay based photographer.
After taking time out to raise a family, she returned to photography in 2018 with the series of works, Surf.
Francis undertakes an all-consuming process of conceptualising, sourcing and digitally manipulating her subjects and images. She proves herself an artist capable of transforming well-known subjects into objects of evocative beauty and wonder. Original, deliberate creations, Francis captures moments in time on Australian surf beaches in this series of works.
Francis has held numerous solo and group exhibitions in London and Australia. Her works have sold in Australia, Hong Kong and Los Angeles.
Francis was a finalist in this year’s Olive Cotton Award for Photographic Portraiture.
