Chris Younger (b. 1981, Newcastle) is an artist living in rural Durham, UK.

He has a Masters degree (with distinction) in Photography from the University of Sunderland and recently completed an artist residency at Durham University. He exhibits internationally and has upcoming exhibitions in Germany and the UK.

Younger 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 an important part 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: chris@chrisyounger.uk
