Kate Oh Gallery is proud to announce its first photography show since its establishment in 2017, featuring photographs by Francis Murphy. The exhibit, Francis’ first solo show in New York, will present Francis’ major works that have yet to be exhibited to the world.
Francis Murphy started his photography career as a teenager by apprenticing in London and working for newspapers and magazines in fashion and portraiture. Once established in his career, he moved into the fashion industry in Paris, France. He then moved to New York to experience life as a photographer and expand his portfolio to children’s photography.
