Chris Pattison

Chris Pattison is an English photographer and writer from the North East.

His images have been displayed as part of the Connected exhibition at Patchings Art Centre and Landscape Photographer of the Year exhibition at the National Theatre.

They have appeared in Amateur Photographer and Outdoor Photography magazines, and online at On Landscape, 35MMC and Edge of Humanity.

He has given up on the self-defeating exercise of aligning himself with photographic genres and takes photographs and makes images of anything he finds interesting, using film and digital cameras. These enquiries and experiments sometimes lead to projects, essays and articles.
