Self-taught like many others who share his passion, Martí completed his education in photography at various schools in Barcelona, Madrid and Paris. Currently settled in his home city, this Barcelona-born photographer has journeyed around the world and has been especially active in Asia and Africa. Following various photographic journeys in the north and south of the American Continent, in addition to a number of Asian countries and indeed European countries too, his relationship with Africa began in Kenya in 2007.
Since then, work on his project has taken him to Ethiopia on various occasions as well as to Namibia, Zambia, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Gambia, the Republic of South Africa and Botswana. He has been able to count on the cooperation provided by the Bushmen, the Mursi, the Himba, the Masai, the Hamer and other indigenous tribes. Fruit of his work is a traveling exhibition titled Ethiopia Between Dream and Reality, a book published under the same name that has been awarded "Best Digital Printing 2014" by the Guild of Graphic Arts and Communication Industry of Catalonia and his current series Animal. Fran is closely involved in cooperation projects and 10% of his sales will be used to help fund the extension of the Jarren hospital in Gambia.Elephants, rhinoceros, elands, cheetahs, leopards, wild African dogs, giraffes, baboons, warthogs, gibbons, gnus, zebras, antelopes, lions, water buffaloes, hippopotamuses, flamingos, sea lions, hyenas and salt water crocodiles are some of the animals Martí has photographed.
