Franca developed the technique for imaging grayscale with typewriter during his 1-year stint in the Cambridge School of Art. Then he created the series “Typewritten Portraits” and considered it as a “project of experimental art.” 

The series is an ongoing project, with more portraits to come. The first five portraits are: J.D. Salinger, Charles H. Bukowski, Jack Kerouac, Jose Saramago, and Clarice Lispector.
