About the Ebook
Natural Raw represents a vision of nature that includes its raw forms and expressions as well as the occasional crude, human contribution. Some of these are dramatic and can even be cruel and violent, and yet, others express a peaceful beauty like no other.
This book attempts to express this raw vision, both through its impactful images and through its accompanying written expressions which poetically transport the reader into nature's world. It attempts to evoke unexpected feelings and thoughts in the viewer, both contrary and predictable. It is Franco's hope that you will enjoy his varying visions – the ethereal brightness, the daze-inducing, happy and flowery views, the dark void within his visions of smoke, the raw crudeness of consumption, and the dreamy nature of colorblind – and feel enthralled by the journey through them.
Born in the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico, Franco Esteve is as varied as they come. His multicultural upbringing throughout the United States and Europe led to his adoption of the concept of everywhere and nowhere for his views of life, origin, and culture. The same has applied to his professional life as well, covering a multitude of disciplines, feeding his thirst for knowledge and expression. Photography has been a stalwart passion throughout his life, and you can often see him walking around town with camera in hand, capturing his particular view of living through the lens.
