Francisco Gonzalez Camacho (b. 1990)  is a Spanish photographer based in Helsinki. He is currently studying a Masters' degree in Photography at Aalto University.

His practice can be denominated as contemporary documentary photography with focus on small stories and themes such as family, immigration and the landscape.

The aesthetics of Gonzalez Camacho’s documentary photography reaches – in some parts – towards pictorialism and poetic narration. It proposes

a contemplation over the documentary photographic image and the ways the image may convey its narrative.
