My life started lending itself to photography a few years ago and so I’ve since manufactured myself into these pictures. I found myself in me the night of Brandon’s funeral, but I’d give it back if he was somehow still here with us. So if you know who’s running heaven these days, tell them I’m ready and willing to negotiate– I want my faith in humanity back. though I’m not changing the world, it means the world to me.
1) Can you tell us something about you?
Still alive. I am 18 years young, but live like I’m already dead.
2) Where do you live and work now?
I live and work in the town of Huntington Beach, at the bottom of California. Here, I bus tables. It’s not so bad, I just miss the days when I knew every single waitress.
3) How long have you been a photographer?
I caught an eye for seeing life through a lens early on, filming skating with all of my friends. I didn’t get into photography until my senior year of high school, my life now revolves around it’s axis.
4) How did you get into photography?
For the girls. Alot has changed since then.
5) Where your inspiration comes from?
Brandon Zergman. Without all of my friends and lovers, I’d be dead.
6) What does it mean for you streetphotography?
“I’ve grown tired of looking backward, it makes moving forward much too difficult. ” -Chris
7) Can you tell us something about your portraits, what’s is important to focus for you?
Most everything turns into the opposite of what I plan it to be, photography is no different. I’ve based one project off a dream I had, the rest are spontaneous.
8.) What are your future works, do you have a special project?
As of now, myself and three others are pushing a creative collective of images that will be sharing out photos, art, short stories,poetry, etc. entitled “We Dont Do Books”. I’m working on a solo project as well, entitled “A Love Token” but until then, the future will continue to freak me out.
