“It is crucial we re-establish our reverence of Nature and regain an understanding of its workings if there is to be any future for humanity.
I want to present beauty as a worth in itself, and for that beauty to act as a conduit to a new affirmation with the natural world which we so desperately need to establish.”

Chris works largely with a Linhof Technikardan 4x5” camera.
