Born in the Marche Region of Italy, and raised in Milan, Francesco Tonelli is a photographer whose style was born from a deep and passionate understanding of food. A former professional chef, restaurateur and teacher, Francesco worked in kitchens across Europe and served as a professor of culinary arts at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America, before picking up a camera to explore the art of digital image capture.
