This body of work resonates deeply with Franko B’s personal biography, who as a child was an orphan in the Italian care system and later came to London after a prolonged period of homelessness in his native Italy, they commonly depict the suffering of innocent youths from a variety of global contexts drawn from Franko B’s exhaustive visual research.
