“I am more interested in interpretation than representation”.
In an interview on his website, Chris describes the solitary working process of walking long distances along the southeast English coast, usually in the rain, and taking far too many pictures. His images incorporate tilt-shift and blur, He cites the late UK photographer, Fay Godwin, as an inspiration, although his portraits remind me of some of Diane Arbus’ images.

Magic theatre. Not for madmen only.
