Francisco Gómez was born in Pamplona in 1918, his family moved to Madrid, where he developed his interest in photography in a self-taught way. In 1956 he joined the Real Sociedad Fotográfica de Madrid and a year later he was associated with the Afal group in Almería. He founded La Palangana together with Gabriel Cualladó, Francisco Ontañón, Leonardo Cantero, Ramón Masats and Rubio Camín, and that same year he won his first award: the Luis Navarro Trophy of Vanguard Photography. Its international launch took place in 1962, when it received an invitation from the French Tourist Commission to be part of the project "11 Spanish photographers in Paris" (Basté, Cantero, Colom, Cualladó, Cubaro, Forcano, Gómez, Masats, Maspons, Miserachs and Ontañón), whose works would be exhibited that same year in the Sala Aixelà of Barcelona and, later, in the Sala Biosca of Madrid. Paco Gómez, who considered himself an amateur photographer, collaborated between 1959 and 1974 with the magazine Arquitectura, published by the College of Architects of Madrid. His work is in important public and private collections, among which stand out those of the National Museum of Reina Sofía Art Center, Madrid; The Valencian Institute of Modern Art (IVAM), Valencia; The Fundación Telefónica, Madrid; The Andalusian Center for Contemporary Art (CAAC), Seville; The Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando, Madrid, or the City of Alcobendas. He died in 1998. Three years after his death, his heirs agreed to cede all his file to the Fundación Colectania Foto, which has since preserved, catalogs and disseminates it.
