Photographer Jay Franco creates some of the most memorable images you'll ever see. Born and raised in New York City he was a special knack for producing stark and alluring black and white photographs that seem straight out of the pages of the old Life magazine.

Surrounded by art at a young age he began his photography career by taking aim at the gritty streets of the city. Jay has since been honored to have his work on exhibition – NYC Over & Under – at Manhattan’s Rio Gallery in the summer of 2011 and -The Faces of Hope project - (about.me/facesofhope) at the gallery at Le Cheile in the summer of 2012.

He's won best photo awards, featured on Digital Photo magazines, The NY Daily News, NY1, the Huffington post, timeout Ny and multiple cover front page story for the Manhattan Times.

Curently a fashion consultant for mens wear, Lead photographer for The Inspired Word, Creator of the Faces of Hope project, contributor at AQ Magazine and a fashion/portrait photographer capturing beautiful images for various editorials.
