Chris juxtaposes editorial commissions in publications such as FT Weekend, i-D, De Correspondent, The Wall Street journal, Morgenbladet, Le Monde, The New Yorker, and Weapons of Reason, with long-term personal projects. He travels throughout the UK and Europe and since 2013, he has lived and worked in Ukraine, responding to the people, landscape and daily life in his grandmother’s native country. This finely observed work evolved into ‘a portrait of small-town and rural Ukraine during rising political tensions … and descent into war.’ In 2016 Chris was selected as one of PDN’s 30 ‘New and Emerging Photographers’. In 2017 he was awarded the Bob and Diana Fund grant for Falling into the Day, a project documenting his longstanding friend who was living with Alzheimer’s.
For SIXTEEN Chris stays in his home-county of west Yorkshire, collaborating with two young men living in Bradford. In the time he spends with these sixteen year olds, he builds up an extraordinarily intimate and compelling series of moments in their daily lives.
