About Christopher

Photography has been a slow evolution for me and now has split into two genres.  I am drawn to the simplicity of light and shadow with black and white photography.  The medium yields a revealing and simultaneous obscuring of reality while best depicting tension and emotion.  My portfolio covers digital work, analog and sometimes use of long exposures to capture combinations of time that only the camera can see.   

Over a gradual period I have made photographs focusing on a cinematic like quality.  While seemingly a distinct departure from my black white work, I find the two to be inextricably linked and quite similar.  Each photograph adheres to a widescreen cinematic aspect ratio of today or cinema past.  Though this restriction my work is designed to show what it feels like to be in this place, a moment with a slant to a dark and quiet mood
