Chris Younger (b. 1981, Newcastle) is an artist, photographer and filmmaker living in rural Durham, UK.
He recently completed a Masters degree (with distinction) in Photography at the University of Sunderland and is currently artist-in-residence at Durham University's Josephine Butler College.
He uses landscape photography to explore the interactions between people, places and nature over time. His highly autobiographical work analyses formal notions of landscape through the filter of his own experiences.
Younger has lived in Durham's Deerness Valley for over a decade and during that time, as his knowledge of the landscape has increased, it has become the main subject of his work.
Younger’s work utilises uncertainty and contingency to explore the relationship between creativity and control.
Younger is available for commissions and collaborations: firstname.lastname@example.org
