Francisco De Deus’ “Letter L” project explores the intersection of photography, graphic design and custom prop-building. De Deus teamed with Sr. Art Director Caro Rebello and Designer Juliano Domingues to problem solve and execute his photographic study of textures, type design and prop-building throughout the image-making process. The concept for the series is the contrast between words and their depictions. The "Letter L" was chosen for having some of the strongest words in the english language, Love and Lies among them. De Deus is known for concepting, creating and incorporating self-styled props in his photographic works. In addition to enhancing an image’s lucidity through the integration of his specialized props - De Deus loves to ‘get his hands dirty’ and creatively overcome obstacles by combining his specialized prop-building and photography skills.
