Francesco Gola is an engineer who fell in love with photography. Born in Italy in 1981, as soon as he started photographing he fell in love with the long expositions of seascapes. For him, a long exposure is a parallel universe in which to escape from the frenzy of modern life. His passion for the sea and for travel has allowed him to visit some of the most iconic places on the planet, looking at them with different eyes. 

Inspired by Romantic painters William Turner and Ivan Konstantinovich Aivazovsky, but also by sacred monsters of photography such as Michael Kenna and Sebastiao Salgado, Francesco has developed a particular emotional relationship with nature that is clearly expressed in his photographs of seascapes.

Today Francesco lives and teaches photography in Milan, where he collaborates with companies, sites and magazines for the dissemination of photographic culture in Italy and in the world.
