Exhibition On: Hong Kong Perspectives | 視角香港
With a Filmmaking Master Degree in his pocket and a hunger to explore, UK-born Christopher decided to start a new life in Hong Kong. Equipped with a strong passion for Art and Visuals, but a tight budget to obtain new film equipment, Christopher found himself experimenting with Photography. Inspired by Hong Kong’s colourful lights and streets, he very quickly fell in love with the simplicity and immediacy of Photography, and never looked back. Since 2015 Christopher started selling his Photography professionally, with his latest large decoration project for urban boutique hotel The Flemming in Wan Chai, Hong Kong.
With inspirations drawn from the cinema and the city, Christopher’s work can be described as Cinematic Street Photography. Capturing the immediate scenes around him, he primarily shoots on 35mm and 120mm film using Nikon FM2 and Mamiya 7ii.
For his intriguing collection Fake Sea, Christopher imagines a narrative weaved between the photographs, where each image visualises a still from a sci-fi movie set in futuristic Hong Kong. Through double exposures and reflections, he puts an emphasis on marine life and neon, as well as characters vanishing into the cities backdrop..
