the short of it
my name is christopher and i'm an artist working through the mediums of photography & photograms. focus is on still lives through pictorialism, the nude form through abstractions & death through surrealism. i concern myself with altering the traditions of photography yet working within the confines of classic methods to search for an emotional esthetic. i make little attempt to explain my works, preferring the viewer to decide for him or herself.
a small history
i started work 11 years ago as a photojournalist & commercial photographer. now I work out of my studio using a blend of modern equipment & classic techniques for exhibition. the work over the past three years has been diverse and purposely so. I’ve worked with various mediums and motifs to search for greater meaning. convention i leave to other others.
this website represents only a portion of my work, the great majority found in print. while i attempt to update it fairly often, it's more an exercise in presentation for exhibition. because of my feelings towards emitted light vs reflected light, few of the exhibition prints are shown here. a listing of exhibitions will appear on this website in the spring of 2014. thanks for stopping by!
