Franco began his working life as a messenger, and then was an assistant for a photography studio. Later he became a photojournalist for newspapers including El País and Diario Occidente, and also worked in advertising. He photographed victims of massacres for money, but in his personal work, made early in the morning and late at night, he sought to represent violence through metaphor.

“That tragic, poor, transitional element that is found all over Latin America is encapsulated in those images… The act of binding, of shipping and storing, bespeaks a defenseless class that exists in each of those countries, where there are people who have never owned property and whose only option for conserving what little they have is to bind and enclose it before moving on elsewhere.” – fernell franco
