Domenico Foschi was born in Bari, Italy, in 1962.

Not being able to afford a formal education in photography, he studied the works of the masters in books.
He found the expressive power of the work of Alvin Langdon Coburn , Kertesz,Steichen, Stieglitz, Strand, Sander, Penn Avedon, and others, of pivotal importance to his direction as a photographer.

Working for Sergio Guidetti, he received “hands on“ training on the use of large format cameras, to developing and printing techniques.
He then worked as a freelance photographer in Ravenna, his home-town, shooting for local magazines, newspapers, the City Administration and Political parties.

Soon he realized that commercial photography wasn't going to allow him to explore photography in a more personal way.

D. F. moved in the U. S. in 1989.
Here he has produced many different projects ranging from portraits, to urban landscapes, to still life,  street photography, etc.. His commercial work took a direction on his own, mainly by producing CD covers for recording artists and commissioned  portraiture.

D. F. has received awards, and his work has been published on View Camera Magazine, B/W Magazine, Silvershotz Magazine, Blow Magazine,Looking Glass Magazine and other publications.

In 2009 he was a grant recipient by the HARC foundation in Santa Monica, California.

His work has been shown extensively in galleries in the US, at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and in Galleries in Spain and Italy.
