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

His practice can be described as contemporary photography with focus on themes such as family, mortality and the connectedness between landscape and self.

The aesthetics of Gonzalez Camacho’s latest work reaches – in some parts – towards pictorialism and poetic narration. It proposes a contemplation over the photographic image and the ways it may convey its narrative, by interwinding together mix techniques, namely infrared photography, bookmaking and the reproduction of the photographic image using analog processes and a variety of materials – such as wood.
