New York-based Chris King left five years of business study to pursue a career in photography and filmmaking. He takes a comprehensive approach to his practice that he finds more fulfilling artistically, working in a range of genres that includes landscape, portraiture, and still life, and is experienced in such technical fields as aerial and architectural photography. His photographs have garnered him numerous international awards, with particular recognition given to his astrophotography. King’s most recent body of work, completed for his Master’s in Digital Photography at New York’s prestigious School of Visual Arts, offers a new perspective on photography’s nude tradition through specialized lighting that brings out the body’s contours and movement. This work will be on display in the fall at Manhattan’s SVA Gramercy Gallery.
