FRANCESCO MERLINI on the BRITISH JOURNAL OF PHOTOGRAPHY “ONES TO WATCH 2016”

Francesco Merlini is one of the 16 photographers featured on the British Journal of Photography “Ones to Watch 2016”, the annual survey of the best emerging photographers from around the world, recommended by a global panel of experts

Since 2011, BJP has dedicated an issue to identify the best emerging talent in the photographic world – the image-makers poised for international success and set to loom large in the industry for years to come.

This year, they’ve asked a global panel of 60 experts – including Martin Parr, Erik Kessels, Bruno Ceschel, Elizabeth Avedon and more – to nominate sixteen photographers they think represent the future of photography.
The panel – made up of editors, curators, educators, gallery owners, festival directors, writers and photographers – have all weighed in and represent the full spectrum of the photographic community.
