About

Chris is a photographer born in Bristol, 1989. He is in the process of completing an MA in Photography at University West of England, whilst along side this working in the gallery at the Martin Parr Foundation and as an associate lecturer at Coventry University.

Within his personal work he is interested in areas of society that he feels are overlooked, interested in exploring themes of identity and place. He is increasingly drawn to ‘speculative documentary’, excited by the possibilities that come with telling visual stories in a loose metaphorical way.
